Dahlia Nayar's "2125 Stanley Street"
On Saturday, April 11 at 7:30pm The Dance Hall presents Dahlia Nayar's "2125 Stanley Street." a contemporary dance performance exploring deeply personal notions of home.  A rigorous collaboration between dancers/co-creators Dahlia Nayar, Margaret Sunghe Paek and cellist/composer Loren Kiyoshi Dempster, the performance adapts as it migrates to various spaces: a studio, a theater, a gallery, a community grange, a buddhist church.

The trio excavates the everyday and the mundane in search of a poetic consciousness, infusing basic tasks with virtuosity and nostalgia, summoning fragmented multilingual memories and lullabies from their childhoods. Ultimately, 2125 Stanley Street invites the audience into an experience of collective belonging and non-belonging, a home that unfolds through movement, sound and intimate exchange, a home that is both familiar and cannot exactly be located.
