Coming Out of Chaos: A Vancouver Dance Story – Community Archives, Oral History, & Networks of Archival Support
Emma Metcalfe Hurst, Karen Jamieson Dance
Coming Out of Chaos: A Vancouver Dance Story is an oral history and archival research project produced by Karen Jamieson Dance that tracks the emergence of contemporary dance in Vancouver, British Columbia from the 1960s to the present day. The project takes the form of a website (www.kjdchaos.ca) which includes interviews with local dancers, choreographers, administrators, critics, and historians; a historical timeline; curated digital archival exhibitions; and a multimedia story told in four chapters that looks back at the collaborative work "Coming Out of Chaos" (1982) and its resonance today. This lightning talk will highlight oral history and archives as a tool for relationship-building, and will touch on themes of community archives, access, and networks of archival support within the non-profit arts sector.
