Board Member News: Dance Craft performance

NWCF Board President Debra Sloan was part of a performance that has been in the works for three years. She was responsible for creating large-scale ceramic figures and masks, which were incorporated into a dance performance. The event was held May 20-22, 2022, at the Fei and Milton Wong Experimental Theatre,  part of the downtown SFU campus. Components from the performance were subsequently exhibited in the window space at the Craft Council of BC from June 10 to July 26. For more, see here.

The three-year project involved five craft artists, Patrick Christie, Stefanie Dueck, Deb Dumka, Hope Forstenzer and Debra Sloan , one each in wood, metal, glass, textile and ceramics, and the Joe Ink Dance troop. The dancers experimented with static objects, animating them through their choreography. The presentation also included dramatic lighting and virtual reality film.
