Mezzanine Gallery Exhibition

The winter exhibition of In Camera: the working dancer, a collaborative exhibition of painting, photography and sculpture by Alison Keenan and myself, opened Thursday, 22 November at the Mezzanine Gallery in the Queen Elizabeth Theatre. The exhibition ran through 18 February 2013, and if you attended we would like to thank you. This exhibition was the result of the a season Alison Keenan and Phyllis Schwartz spent documenting five Ballet BC choreographic workshops during 2011-2012. Our work was in response to our observations of the working dancers confronting their own artistic boundaries. We are so appreciative of Artistic Director, Emily Molnar, and Ballet BC dancers and collaborators, Connie Sabo, exhibition coordinator for Emily Carr University Alumni Society and Stamatis Charalambidis at Bill’s Glass. Further information about our work can be found on our respective websites.
