Dancers’ Studio West’s Dance Action Group


As a cultural community, Calgary’s artists seem to create and perform without looming historical precedents, and with it a refreshing lack of self-consciousness. People just do what they want to do. This ethos is evident in the work of DAG – a relatively small group of performers and choreographers from a diverse range of backgrounds who make up the artistic core of Dance Action Lab.

Dance and Objecthood

In dance training, personality routinely gets tamped down.

This leaves dance in a curiously anachronistic position with respect to a new generational trend in the arts – interdisciplinarity.
