Stand Up Dance. Moving. Social. Imagination. Working across forms and borders, Stand Up Dance activates people individually and collectively, creating transformative experiences that blur the line between dance and theatre, performance and action. Treating studio, stage, classroom and public space as an R&D lab for society, Artistic Director Meagan O'Shea examines ideas from unexpected angles. Working across Canada, into the States and throughout Europe making dance for a better world, Stand Up Dance is thrilled to be bringing The Love Project to BC.

The Love Project is a physically daring, funny and poignant dance-theatre performance that explore elements of healthy relationships. Respect, communication and having fun are extolled in sections like Chemistry, Taking Risks & Building Trust, Compassion and Forgiveness. Fluidly changing roles, five dancers move through this 35 minute piece that links to Ministry of Education Sex Ed and Consent Curriculum. Using a range of performance styles, the show is smart, sexy, and funny - pre-teen and teenager style.
