2013-2014 Season

Following are our 2013 – 2014 performances, activities, and events.

Kokoro Dance’s Sensual Solstice Celebration took place on Sunday, June 22 at the beautiful home of Philip Seth and Peter Eastwood. Proceeds of this fundraising event were applied towards the creation of Kokoro Dance’s new work, The Book of Love.

The Book of Love will be a collaboration between Kokoro Dance, British artist Jonathan Baldock, and Vancouver composer Jeffrey Ryan. Choreography will be by Barbara Bourget and Jay Hirabayashi for five dancers. Jonathan will create the set and costumes for the work and Jeff will create the music for four live musicians. The Book of Love continues our interest in interdisciplinary collaborations and will result in a seriocomic production rich in kinetic, visual, and musical textures.
