Artist Statement:


    Vancouver is crumbling. Or perhaps it‘s being methodically taken apart brick by brick. Whether for reasons of density, seismic upgrade or escalating value, old houses, schools, and movie theatres are being demolished to make way for the new. Referencing Derrida’s semiotic text, deConstruction is an ongoing series of choreographed short films that capture the dismantling of the historic city. What might have been inhabited for half a century can be demolished in a day. By introducing dance to demolition, Siebens points out that ageism applies to architecture as it does to the bodies of dancers.
