Evolving from a pilot project in 2011, the Vancouver Park Board’s Artist Studio Residencies program has grown from just a handful to now over 50 artists (solo or part of collectives), all working out of a variety of field houses, park facilities, marinas, and community centres around our city. The program provides artists with free work-only studios in exchange for community arts-based engagement. Currently residing in the Pandora Park field house (2325 Franklin Street) is Dance Troupe Practice, a movement based performance collective who combine dance, voice, video, and installation in their art work. Committed to “a deep exploration of the moving body and creative collaboration,” the collective look forward to connecting community needs and interests to their own practices, and to explore the connections between dance and everyday life in unexpected places. The collective is sharing the fieldhouse with a Vancouver Biennale artist-in-residence during 2015 – 2016.
