This event has ended

See upcoming Dance events

Acclaimed Canadian contemporary dance artist Peggy Baker joins forces with violinist Sarah Neufeld and drummer Jeremy Gara, members of award-winning Canadian band Arcade Fire, to reveal the splendours and complexities of the human soul. In a series of contrasting tableaux, who we are in the dark probes the secrets that hide in the shadows. Video projections, lighting effects, and paintings by visual artist John Heward shape the space. Music and movement meet and collide, gripping, fragile, touching. Between agitation and serenity, chaos and calm, volatile emotional states transfigure the movement and the space. Light and dark resonate in a fusion of bodies, dance and music. A vibrant deep dive to the heart of the night, charged with the promise of dawn.
