15 for 15, originally created for Mocean Dance, is composed of 15 one-minute works created by 15 choreographers set on 15 dancers. Brian Riley’s original music animates the production. Mocean polled the Halifax arts community to come up with single words to describe Atlantic Canada’s dance scene. With descriptors that include “resilient”, “savage”, and “blooming”, each short work reflects one of the high-octane adjectives and offers an engaging sample of each creator’s individual aesthetic. Together We Rise is an adaptation of the original 15 for 15 piece, created for the large-scale collaboration of some 40 young artists from both Halifax Dance’s The Young Company and the Guelph Youth Dance Company.
