Julianne Chapple’s trio Self Portrait is a complex and subtle study of identity and female self-image, drawing on depictions of women in art and the relationship with the spectator. Created in residency at Edam Dance in Vancouver, Self Portrait premiered at the Edam Dance Series in December 2016.
Julianne Chapple’s work explores surreal imagery, objecthood and memory. Drawing on a history of performed movement including circus acrobatics and performance art as well as classical and contemporary dance forms, the edges of the body’s mobility is explored and exploited often to the effect of depersonalizing the human form. Based in Vancouver, BC, she has shown work across Canada and abroad, most recently creating a new work in residence at Edam Dance and premiering a durational solo at the Visualeyez Festival of Performance Art. Julianne was Artist In Residence at the Dance Centre for the 15/16 season and is the 2017 recipient of the Iris Garland Emerging Choreographer Award.
