The Body Orchestra is a collection of independent dance artists based mostly in Vancouver, BC. The company formed in 2016 to create Jenn Edwards' Conduit. Two more works have been created to date: Other Creatures (Edwards) and Viewer Discretion by Jen Aoki. As a triple bill, these works were presented at the 2017 Calgary Fringe Festival and the 2018 Winnipeg Fringe. Next up, you can catch us at the 2019 Vancouver Fringe Festival, Sept 5-15, 2019.
