Alpha Compass

Choreography by Karissa Barry

Performance/Collaboration: Christoph von Riedemann
Music: Moonlight Sonata, Beethoven (slowed to 800%), M-theory text, True Detective, edited by Karissa Barry
Costumes: Karissa Barry
Original performance/collaboration: Scott Fowler

Alpha Compass is inspired by themes of solitude, mortality, ego, and the human response to change. Using the physics-based “M-Theory” as a creative influence, this solo explores physicality motivated by what our existence may mean when applied to multiple dimensions of time, grasping to reality and identity.

Tenterhooks

Choreography by William Yong

Performance: Zachary Cardwell, Alison Keery and Brendan Wyatt
Music: ‘The Essential Alfred Hitchcock’
Original performance: Piotr Biernat, Jasmine Ellis and Andrew Taylor

Filled with the quirks and quandries of a camping trip trio, Tenterhooks is inspired by all manner of camping experiences; the hilarious upsets and the surprising joys that arise from unexpected circumstances found in and around a nylon camping tent.

First premiered as a Dusk Dances commission in 2007.

Uno Dos Y Tres

Choreography by Carmen Romero

Performance: Carmen Romero
Live music performance: Stephanie Pedraza
Costumes: Patricia Cueva

Based on a poem by Manuel Benitez Carrasco from the 1920s, UNO DOS Y TRES is a visual metaphor of the internal conflicts we deal with in life. This physical and emotional work offers the audience a flamenco performance that goes beyond the traditional presentation, shifting audience expectations and demanding an open mind and heart.

Vuela Vuela, la danse

Choreography by Dans son salon

Original creation/interpretation: Karenne Gravel, Chloé Ouellet-Payeur, Emmalie Ruest and Marie-Philippe Santerre
Performance in Terrebonne: Ariane Famelart, Marijoe Foucher, Emmalie Ruest and Liane Thériault
Musical arrangement: Benjamin Prescott La Rue and Dj Black Fly

Four women are wandering around a public space, moving in a strange way, like tourists discovering their host community. Through three repetitions of the song Voyage Voyage (Travel Travel), these women, moving in hypnotic slowness, suddenly start physically expressing their passion for traveling through dance. Each dancer wears their own colour, like travelling superheroes, offering a show that is both sensitive and festive.
