The Garden is proud to present “Empty Full: Creating and Sharing Space” with Ziyian Kwan.
Join us for an insightful talk, in which Ziyian will be discussing her art and personal inspirations.Bio:
Ziyian Kwan has worked as a dance artist on the unneeded and ancestral territories of the the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations, since 1988.
As an interprète, she has performed close to 100 original creations by an eclectic range of choreographers on international stages, and is recipient of The Dance Centre’s Isadora Award for excellence in performance.
Ziyian’s choreography has been performed across Canada, receiving commissions and invitations to create from a generous community of presenting colleagues. As Artistic Director of Dumb Instrument Dance, her work abstracts lived experience to create collages of imagery and spoken word. Over three decades, Ziyian’s artistry has been indelibly defined by collaboration with luminaries in the fields of dance, music, film, theatre and visual art.
