What’s on (Edmonton): Melt; a prefix for a prayer – Mile Zero Dance


Mile Zero Dance is pleased to have James Viveiros in Edmonton on December 14-15 to present “Melt; a prefix for a prayer” as part of Mile Zero’s Dance Crush series.

MELT; a prefix for a prayer is a 30-minute solo inspired by the idea of melting the boundaries that divide us. It is a dancing ritual and an exercise on freedom. The piece, created by James Viveiros of GAGA, engages the audience in surprising ways, giving each individual an opportunity to experience this openness from new perspectives. The word MELT refers to a softening of the heart and of our behavior; melting away the physical barrier, which causes fear or inhibition to connect.

James Viveiros is a graduate of both the Grant MacEwan College Music, Theatre, and Dance Programs where he received the Evelyn Davis scholarship. A former member of LA COMPAGNIE MARIE CHOUINARD (CMC), he performed nationally and internationally for sixteen years. He has also collaborated with several Canadian companies and choreographers as an interpreter and creator. In 2009, James was the recipient of a Gemini award (film and television) alongside the other company members of CMC, for best performance in a Performing Arts Program or series for bODY_rEMIX/les_vARIATIONS_gOLBERG, by CMC. James was awarded funding on two occasions from CALQ to become a certified Gaga teacher and studied with Batsheva under the direction of Bosmat Nossan and Ohad Naharin in Tel Aviv, Israel. James teaches Gaga and continues to work on his creations alongside working as a Rehearsal Director for Collective La Tresse.
