This Vancouver-based dance company is dedicated to producing new dance work through a shared creative process. They are bringing to our stage a powerful, mixed gender piece called Vital Few.

Inspired by the exchange between urban and contemporary forms, 605 places emphasis on movement, innovation and physically demanding works. The company aims to offer a highly athletic art form derived from the human experience, exploring new paths and creative methods to build powerful and engaging performances.

605 Collective’s brand new work with six unique performers, has been a collaborative undertaking utilizing mechanisms of constant codependence and interrelation between the dancers. Each performer’s own distinct expression, movement, and choice making weaves together to collectively build the moving sculpture of the group body, the whole greater than the sum of its parts. Acknowledging both an autonomy and responsibility to the group, the struggle of coexistence within the set parameters and finite space continuously informs the content of this hyper-connected dance.

The work pushes the company into new physical territory to further explore the essence of unison and togetherness, the negotiation of group dynamics, and the preservation of self inside the collective consciousness.

With a rapidly expanding repertoire, 605 Collective has performed from coast to coast in over 30 cities across Canada (Vancouver, Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Halifax), as well as in the US (Seattle, Durham, NC, New York). Their collaborations with filmmakers has allowed their work to be shared globally, with short dance films shown at over 20 dance-on-screen festivals around the world.
