Donna Redlick Dance presents Blood From Stone

Scotiabank Dance Centre
677 Davie Street, Vancouver
“None of us stands outside humanity’s black collective shadow.”
- Carl Jung
Blood from Stone is inspired by past and present stories of Vancouver’s historical Blood Alley. Bloody tales of the alley’s past are woven together with its present day lived experiences and perceptions to create a hybrid reality where fact and fiction become blurred. Digging beneath the surface of stone and brick the darker side of humanity is juxtaposed against the light of the human spirit. Parts of our shadow selves emerge, like ghosts of the past, staring back at us for a brief moment in time. It is within these intangible moments that the witness must decipher the real versus the imagined, or notice that which still remains hidden beneath the cobblestone.
Choreography: Donna Redlick
Performed by: Salome Nieto, Alisoun Payne, Olivia Shaffer, and Cara Siu
About Donna Redlick Dance
DRD is dedicated to a philosophical approach to making dance, creating and producing independent contemporary dance works that are based on the subjective and lived experience. Sensitive to the human condition and the idea of ‘the self’ the movement is sourced from states of reflecting, being and becoming, inviting the invisible to become visible for a brief moment in time and space.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Donna Redlick Dance
