About the event

This new work by Vancouver’s All Bodies Dance Project was created in a collaborative process to explore the theme of “home” through movement, text, narrative, and imagery.

Examining themes of belonging and displacement through a Jewish lens, this piece explores how our private lives overlap and intersect with those of our neighbours in urban living, sharing the many unique stories contained within a community. In researching and creating this work, experienced professional dancers of diverse abilities joined with members of the JCC Inclusion Program, serving adults with mental health challenges and developmental disabilities to explore the personal movement language of the project contributors through a choreographic process that values community, difference, and care.

On Display Global



Sunday December 3, 2023

4:00 to 5:00 pm PT

(in person and online) 


You are invited to take part in ON DISPLAY GLOBAL (ODG), a performance taking place both in person and online on Sunday, December 3 in honour of United Nations’ International Day of Persons with Disabilities.  


ODG is an annual, worldwide initiative led by New York based Heidi Latsky Dance . It is an in-person and virtual event lasting 24 hours and streamed live on Zoom. Part meditation and part art exhibition, participants move almost imperceptibly slowly for the entire performance, (while also taking care of themselves of course as we do in ABDP!) There are no grand gestures or big movements. The performance invites dancers of all ages, sizes, and embodiments to be “on display” as “sculptures”. The piece is a “commentary on the body as spectacle and society's obsession with body image.”

This year, dancers can participate in-person or online but they must take part in the rehearsal to learn the performance score.
