Selected Artists


We are excited to announce our first 3 groups of artists for the 2020-2021 season:

Restless Productions: Claire French (Dance) and James Maxwell (Music)

Kate Franklin (Dance) and Jeremy O'Neill (Music)

Eldon Pulak (Dance), Perri Lo (Music) Emma Parkinsons (Music)


Ne. Sans in collaboration with The Dance Centre’s Special Projects and Partnerships, is launching a new project, supporting collaboration between classical musicians and dance artists. The project offers 3 dance artists and 3 musicians (individuals and groups) the opportunity to collaborate on the creation of short, approximately 20 min pieces. Selected projects receive a fully subsidized studio space of 80 hours in total, technical support, and compensation for a sharing/presentation at the end of the process (September 2021).
Established in 2017 by Artistic Director Idan Cohen in Vancouver, Canada Ne. Sans is re-imagining and reconnecting Opera & Dance.
Directing opera through contemporary dance opens a whole new world of collaborative opportunities: an environment that involves working with singers, dancers, musicians, visual artists, and designers.
By experimenting and constantly expanding our knowledge of multi-disciplinary art forms, we are forging what we see as a natural hybridization of the Arts. Our ambition is to create exciting, thought-provoking, artistically challenging art- and to strengthen and inspire our community.

Selected applicants were invited to a two-day seminar on February 8 &9th, 2020.
Performances are planned to September, 2021 at TDC.


Supported by The City of Vancouver, Cultural grants.

Presented by 'Chutzpah! Festival.

Hourglass brings together contemporary dance and live music. This new work features a duet with Racheal Prince & Brandon Lee Alley (Dance//Novelle) joined on stage by pianist and celebrated conductor Leslie Dala. Hourglass is set to 4 Piano Études by acclaimed minimalist composer Philip Glass. Glass’s work is celebrated for its ability to bend time, play with our perception of it, and break it apart.


Coming Soon!

Ne. Sans has exciting plans. Foremost is a presentation that gives new life to Gluck's enthralling opera ‘Orfeo ed Eurydice' by retelling the myth through the interweaving of opera and dance.
