Alumna wins prestigious Venice Biennale award

April 27, 2017

Dana Michel (BFA Contemporary Dance, 2006) has been awarded the prestigious Silver Lion award at the Venice Biennale of Dance, to be presented on June 27, 2017.

From the Biennale website: "This young artist has only created two or three works, and she has already found her way into our memories. She is continually in the process of re-creating her current history, live, in front of us, infusing the stage with her own propensity for fluctuating identities and, somehow, she inseminates us with the desire to follow her.

She is a child, a philosopher with no words, she is a creator, she is a precious phenomenon of very serious humour. With total confidence and in a state of unusual peace, she reconstructs the raw and complex experience of simply being." (Marie Chouinard)
