The RCA is pleased to announce the addition of Body Extended, an innovative dance showcase, to its “RCA Presents” spring performance lineup! Featuring stunning original works from performers Emmalena Fredriksson and Jessica McMann, join us for Body Extended.
Body Extended questions the limits of the human body, exploring how it stretches into the world through its relationships with land and technology. The program begins with the live premiere of Fredriksson's Ecdysis, which extends the body technologically through light and movement. After a short intermission, the program continues with McMann's iihksiisiinatsiistostiimao nipaitapiitsiin. Rooted in land-based Indigenous research-creation methods, this work interweaves McMann's personal history of adoption with broader experiences of displacement from and connection to the land.
Don't miss this one-of-a-kind performance! Tickets are on sale now.
This show is made possible with the support of the Dance West Network, the City of Kelowna, the BC Touring Council, the BC Arts Council, and the Province of British Columbia.
