Event description

Description

HAI/18 is a double bill choreographed by Avinoam Silverman a former soloist with the National Ballet of Canada and now a freelance choreographer and teacher. The evening showcases a solo work titled Shedding Eve danced by freelance dance artist Amy Hampton and an ensemble work for seven dancers titled Anvil 18.

Both works examine our traditions, the relationships we have with them and how we choose to forge our own paths moving forward.
