About Triadic Dance Works

TDW is a collaborative dance collective based in Vancouver, Canada. Over the past two years, we have been commited to broadening the audience for contemporary dance by performing relevant, accessible works in both traditional and unusual settings. We have performed extensively in our hometown and neighboring cities such as Port Moody, Coquitlam, and Seattle, Washington, as well as in Berlin, Germany. We have danced at outdoor festivals, on lawns, in carports, at the Planetarium, and in cabarets. We have done full-bodied abstract works, performed as roving characters, and ventured into theatrical explorations. Interdisciplinary work has always been of interest to us; so far we have collaborated with composers to create original scores, visual artists to create dynamic settings, and filmmaKers to transpose our choreography to the screen.
