Editors' Comment

Having danced with the National Ballet of Canada and the Bonn Ballet before studying film production and entering performance art, Evann Siebens brings a particular attention to the body, gesture and documentation in her practice. For instance, her 2018–19 work Plus TheCo, Minus Helen Goodwin involved collaboration with many other creators to make a sculptural, video and performative homage to little-known Canadian choreographer Helen Goodwin. In this upcoming June 2020 online Zoom performance, Siebens will likely be solo, but collaborating with others in the history of dance and performance through a process of embodiment, imitation and social and temporal distance. —Leah Sandals
