Winnipeg's Contemporary Dancers/The Rachel Browne Theatre, The McKim Building.

Winnipeg, MB

Directions: WCD's video is projected on a second floor window surface at Winnipeg's Contemporary Dancers, facing Old Market Square. Look up to WCD's neon signs and you will see our video. This projection runs on a loop and is intended to be experienced through the natural curiosity of looking up, evoking increased curiosity for what may be behind other darkened windows, or the unknown. The projection may catch the unexpected viewer's attention from many points in Old Market Square, including from restaurant patios, the Cube, and several street corners.



Offered in English.

Wheelchair accessible.

This is an outdoor, self-guided experience.


Self-guided viewing experience. WCD's Dance Projection features Jolene Bailie in her self-created solo, Hybrid Human.

Hybrid Human is a poetic piece that tells its’ story through presence and clarity. The video features a lone dancer communicating through distilled gestures and movement.

In 2010, Bailie choreographed Hybrid Human in conjunction with artist Wanda Koop for Koop’s retrospective On the Edge of Experience at the Winnipeg Art Gallery and at the National Gallery of Canada (2011), since then the dance work has been performed in many scenarios across Canada and beyond. The video for Nuit Blanche is created from footage of Bailie's performance at Today Art Museum in Beijing, China.
