The Legacy Project

2016
Co-production

In June 2015, ten dance artists came to Quebec to take part in a period of reflection and experimentation around the Legacy Project, developed by the Margie Gillis Dance Foundation. For ten days, the participants explored Margie Gillis’ repertoire and unique methods of teaching. They attended daily classes, followed by observation workshops taught by Margie at Springboard Danse Montreal, in which they learned excerpts from her repertoire and took part in a new creation.

The participants in the summer of 2015 were Lindsey Renee Derry, Maggie Forgeron, Kate Hilliard, Ruth Levin, Teresa Marcaida, Troy Ogilvie, Susan Paulson, Makaila Wallace and Daphne Fernberger.

The combined documents are from the first development stage of the project.
