Making Marks


Photo credit: Luciana Friere D'Anunciação A photo of seven seated and standing dancers wearing casual clothing in different facings on a black box theatre stage. They’re each holding long ragged paper shapes that look illuminated in tones of pink and yellow against the black. Each dancer is moving with the paper in their own way - swooping, swirling, small and large movements. One of the dancers is holding a large piece over their head, walking towards and looking directly at the camera.

Making Marks (2023) 

Created: May 2023

Roundhouse Performance Centre, Vancouver, BC


MAKING MARKS is a multidisciplinary performance by Ready Dance Youth Project, a vibrant group of young artists with and without disabilities, in collaboration with facilitators from All Bodies Dance Project. The piece welcomes the audience into a kaleidoscopic, experimental dance world that combines movement, drawing and music. 

Making Marks is a celebration of our creative work from over the past 5 years! It is a composition of ideas that we keep revisiting with new intentions, a collection of traces of who we are.

Made possible with funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, BC Arts Council, The Roundhouse, Vancouver Parks Board and the City of Vancouver.
