Disagreeable Tales

(Vancouver International Dance Festival March 2018)

Inspired by a compilation of Christian moral tales written by Leon Bloy (1846 – 1917), Disagreeable Tales is an exploration of the violence, cruelty, and perversions in and around us. The questions are: where in our bodies does the sensation of this history of violence lie? What are the possible ways we could face this violence in order to acknowledge it? Maybe in this acknowledging… maybe… we find a moment of vague solidarity.

Performers: Ashley Aron, June Fukumura, Arash Khakpour

Director: Aryo Khakpour
