Peter Bingham’s creation, Divergence, explores how structure determines relationships, how freedom finds expression within restrictions. The dancers can only meet according to pre-set rules, but within this framework they are free to improvise. Where do the dances converge, when do they diverge? Through their dancing the space becomes the choreography. Performed by Delia Brett, Anne Cooper, James Gnam, Elissa Hanson, Walter Kubanek, Alex Mah, Diego Romero and Olivia Shaffer. 

Noam Gagnon will present Between Us, a reflection upon the enigmatic words of Fernando Pessoa:  “There are no norms. All people are exceptions of a rule that doesn’t exist.” Performed by Lara Barclay, Heather Dotto and Graham Kaplan.

Vanessa Goodman’s work, Accumulating, examines bodies of water and the water of our bodies. This piece was created in collaboration with audiovisual artist Loscil and performers Alexa Mardon and Karissa Barry.
