In the past year, NGJC has appeared at Word On the Street, Christmas Craft Fairs, nightclubs, poetry readings, album release parties, nightclubs, gardens, bistros, salons....among many locations.
The Nijinksy Gibber Jazz Club engages in a process we call Public Research.
It works something like this:
Take a group of brilliant improvisers at the top of their game: Justine Chambers, Billy Marchenski, Darcy McMurray, Amber Funk-Barton, Chris Wright, Lara Barclay and musician/composer Stefan Smulovitz for example, our most recent members.
Add 1 canny choreographer concocting devious, outside-the-box scores.
Result? witty, current, spontaneous dance just when you least expect it,
in public places around the City of Vancouver. Near you.
Listen in on a conversation with participating artists at TALK
Offer friends in your community an immediate way to engage with artistic process. While art is frequently removed from the spectator and shown only as display in final form, Mascall and the NGJC are interested in engaging in an open dialogue with our audiences, reaching beyond our loyal and accustomed viewers to those less familiar with dance.
