Presented in partnership with the Arts and Culture Centre
Thoughtful stories, boundary-pushing bodies, and curious props tie together three new solo dance theatre performances by dancers with Corner Brook roots! Prepare for an evening of sincerity, comedy, and quirky performances. Featuring:
Hillary Knee in “Opera With Staircase” by Sharon Moore
A muse recounts her tumultuous journey with life on the stage; fantasy, beauty, hope, wealth and poverty. Grand and miniature, strange and heartbreaking, it explores a world of the dramatic heart.
Josh Murphy in “Who Knit Ya?” by Candice Pike
Dance that evokes ideas of home and belonging/not belonging, queerness, and perhaps a gritty/sensual side of rural living. The movement combines sculptural and rhythmic subtleties with playful notions of concealing and revealing.
Candice Pike in “Alice Falling” by Lois Brown
Falling down the rabbit-hole of sensory experiences and human brain development, this piece explores images of human/animal hybrids, fainting, and delicate stories of anxiety. They merge in a mixture of dance, imagery, narrative, audience engagement, and tutus.
