This double-program features pieces by Vera Kvarcakova and Jérémy Galdeano, as well as James Viveiros.

FOMO “Fear of Missing Out.”  A feeling of anxiety about missing out on an exciting event and, consequently, being excluded or feeling rejected from a particular group. Inspired by the acronym, this piece highlights the toxic relationships that can exist between social media networks and their users, often expressed by a constant need to share content online, among other things. FOMO asks the fundamental question, “How does social media addiction influence our perceptions and behaviours?”

PLAY:BACK is loosely based on Plato’s Symposium, a fantastical, mythological story about a time when twice as many humans existed as do today. Because they were viewed as a threat by the gods, Zeus cut each human in two. Since then, they have been searching for their other halves, seeking completeness. This piece explores the feeling of emptiness that arises from the absence of the “other.” The performance is a journey revealing a vision of love and desire that exists beyond race, gender and sexual preference. It is an ode not only to attachment, but also to passionate, occasionally toxic love and the human experience of interconnectedness in this web of life.
