An empty Vancouver rooftop parking lot on a bright partially cloudy day, with mountains and buildings in the background. There's a covered area at the far end, and a small enclosure in the foreground. There are three different photos of the roof, with a dancer interacting with bold yellow lines drawn on each of the photos. The top image is wide, showing the length and width of the space. A dancer in a motorized wheelchair on the far left is leaning over to the side and seems to be holding the yellow line in their hand as it wiggles and winds to the right, zig zagging up and down at increasingly steeper angles. Then the jagged line extends off the page into a jagged dotted line. A standing dancer standing on the line appears to be tumbling off the page. The next, smaller image is below, and shows a dancer in a manual wheelchair balancing on his back wheels along a bold yellow meandering line. The drawn line intersects the painted yellow line down the middle of the length of the parking lot. The third photo shows a standing dancer in a tilted arabesque, seemingly on top of a bouncing yellow line that continues off into the distance.

It’s Enough (for a rooftop)is an ongoing project featuring dancers from the All Bodies Dance community. In October 2020, the dancers first convened on the rooftop of Sun Wah Centre 新華中心, a vacant parking lot, which provides space for safe and physically distanced dance practice. Through improvisational scores, writing, laughing, drawing, documentation and discussion, the project explores the complex feelings that surface when dancing together in person during a pandemic. The practice holds questions about dance-making that prioritizes community care, individual needs and accessibility. More than anything, “it’s enough” to dance together.

We are excited to invite you onto the rooftop and to share some of our practice with you.
