The Hibernation Project: HEAT SEEKING

February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm

HEAT SEEKING: a hide & seek slow dance

Saturday, February 24, 2024
Doors at 7 pm, Dance from 8-midnight
cSPACE Eau Claire

Theme by Desiree Nault, with Rebecca Reid & Ryan Bourne, and Caitlind Brown & Wayne Garrett

This year, we’re welcoming the return of the slow dance! Featuring a live band and communal movement games, this slow dance gives dancers the opportunity to question their relationship to touch, movement, music, sensation, space, and what the heck dancing even is.

The theme of this edition is Hiding and Seeking while dancing. We invite dancers to explore the theme through games and challenges that structure the event. We will provide an example of the games and challenges so you can get a sense of whether this will be fun for you sometime before the event.


  • You don’t have to bring a partner.
  • We will bring props but feel free to bring your own.
  • Wear whatever makes you feel like dancing.
  • There will be a few snacks and lots of water. Alcohol or BYO? TBC.
  • There are no washrooms in the space, but there are facilities in a little building behind cSPACE Eau Claire, or at a hotel nearby

Want to attend the dance? There’s extremely limited space! Make sure you RSVP in advance…
