Mile Zero Dance is thrilled to present Justine Chambers Family Dinner as the first installment of their Dance Crush series on Thursday, November 30 and Friday, December 1.
Family Dinner, created by Vancouver’s Justine Chambers, is an immersive and intimate dining performance – a cumulative project that invites the public to dine with performers. The work is at once a performance, embodied recording, a choreographic exploration of a shared meal and conversation with dinner guests. Derived from essence; essence of habit, social cues and personal histories, the work functions as a palimpsest – each performance written upon the one before – leaving its trace within the shared vocabulary of the performers. Family dining rituals and gestures are gathered from performers and guests, these physical memories are recalled and reinterpreted as a means to continuously develop the work.
Tickets for the event are on now on sale to the general public. Tickets are available to those 18 years of age or older online at Eventbrite.ca; prices are $50 for the general public and $45 for MZD Members. Limited tickets with 9 seats available on each night.
