Celebrate Ontario Culture Days with TAKE UP SPACE! Join us online for a live stream rehearsal of where the wings grow with choreographer Elizabeth Emond-Stevenson and dancers Lois Chan & Sarah Hopkin at The School of Dance. This event will be available through Facebook Live on TAKE UP SPACE's page @takeupspacedance and accessible from any location with internet/Wifi.

where the wings grow explores the dynamics of our connection with the earth and works to reveal the ties to this wildness that run deep but that have become obscured by our culture’s focus on the instant, the digital and our hunger for consumption. We are not separate from the wilderness outside. where the wings grow is an attempt to reunite our wild with the wilderness- its source and power.

where the wings grow is being expanded into a full length work with the generous support of the City of Ottawa and will be presented December 6 & 7 2019 at The University of Ottawa's Academic Hall. where the wings grow was commissioned for the Annual Alberta Dance Festival 2018. It was subsequently presented at pass more dance in March 2019 and as opening act for Allison Burns at Ottawa Fringe 2019.




TAKE UP SPACE (Ottawa ON) is the moniker for dance artist / writer Elizabeth Emond-Stevenson’s work.

TAKE UP SPACE seeks to manifest the unique energy and impetus aka possibilities unfolding within a spatial/energetic/musical landscape. TAKE UP SPACE searches for deep connection to rhythm and dynamic changes while exploring relational/spatial interdependence and sensorial perception. Always present is a fascination with the many ways an idea can be transmitted through art. TAKE UP SPACE questions the creative process and performance and is passionate about cultivating a living, breathing relationship with the audience and collaborators.

TAKE UP SPACE values and practices diversity & inclusivity in artistic creation and production, as well as collaboration, interdisciplinary workmanship, exploration and artist autonomy. TAKE UP SPACE works to actively engage in local and national initiatives, creating connections between artforms, artists and audience members.

TAKE UP SPACE acknowledges that the land on which we work is the traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin nation, and recognizes the Algonquin people as the past, present and future caretakers of this land. TAKE UP SPACE is grateful to create, perform & collaborate here.
