A standing dancer and a dancer in a power wheelchair circle around a post on a rooftop

Photo credit: Gemma Crowe A photo of two dancers on a rooftop parking lot overlooking city buildings, mountains and trees on a bright cloudy day. The lot has a white concrete barrier around it, and between the dancers is a wide concrete pillar. A motorised wheelchair dancer orients their body to the camera. They are wearing all black, and leaning slightly to their right, their gaze on the ground to the side. The other dancer is wearing a bright red t-shirt with long black sleeves underneath, and black workout pants with red and white stripes down the sides. They are walking with a wide step out in front of them, their left arm swinging freely to the side. The two dancers seem to be circling the pillar, but keeping distance between them.

It's Enough (for a rooftop) (2020)

t’s Enough (for a rooftop) is an ongoing research project featuring dancers from the All Bodies Dance community. In October 2020, dancers first convened on the rooftop of Sun Wah Centre 新華中心 at 268 Keefer Street, Chinatown, Unceded Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Territory. The vacant parking lot, provided space for safe and physically distanced dance practice. Through improvisational scores, writing, laughing, drawing, documentation and discussion, the project explores the complex feelings that surface when dancing together in person during a pandemic. The practice holds questions about dance-making that prioritizes community care, individual needs and accessibility. More than anything, “it’s enough” to dance together.
