  • Evolutions is a transcendental and transformative adventure for audiences, with the fluidity and distinctiveness associated with Margie Gillis. In each show, Margie will be accompanied by Legacy Project dancers. Audiences will be offered an entirely singular experience, depending on the composition of the group performing. Spectators will be transported through a selection of works from Margie’s prolific repertoire, both in solos and group dances, interpreted acknowledging the individuality of each dancer’s experience.


    2018 marked Margie Gillis’ 45th year as a creative force, during which she brought to life an astounding 100 original works. The dance community had called on this international icon to share her philosophy, works, performance techniques and pedagogy. In response, Margie created The Legacy Project. The goal: to allow future generations, decades from now, to experience her masterful art, speaking to our humanity and collective soul.

    Over fifty international participants are involved in the Legacy Project. Margie has chosen to work with high-calibre professional dancers because of their understanding and commitment to her legacy. These participants include dancers from companies such as José Navas/Compagnie Flak (Montreal), Marie Chouinard (Montreal), Anatomiae Occultii (New York), Ballet BC (Vancouver), Dance-makers Dance Company (Toronto) and KUNST-STOFF Productions (San Francisco/Europe).
