Be Heintzman Hope

Moving between sound and performance, Be Heintzman Hope is a facilitator of music, dance and embodiment ritual, based between Tio’tia:ke/Mooniyang, colonially known as Montréal and the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (musquem), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Wateuth) peoples. Their practice bridges dance training with conflict resolution, healing, and community arts. They hold workshops that center queer, trans, racialized bodies, and sex workers in transitional spaces, dance institutions, universities, DIY contexts, and festivals — offering meditation, singing, and dance as medicines to those on the front lines of their healing journeys. They have recently danced in Dog Rising by Clara Furey, and are currently developing a new project supported by Parbleux.
