Propeller Dance

Propeller Dance, Canada’s foremost contemporary integrated dance company, celebrates artists of diverse bodies and minds. Flesh & Spokes and Spasticus challenge perceived notions, open hearts, and celebrate our differences. Inspired by Ian Dury’s “spastic” anthem, Spasticus is a bright explosion out of darkness, a successful uprising, in which the liberated triumphantly declare, “I am Spasticus!” In Flesh & Spokes, dancers flow through an abstract landscape making connections through curiosity, resistance, and acceptance.
