As she  shall  obtain  such  command  of  her  mass  vein  passageways (World premiere)
Choreographer: Allison Cummings
Performer: Kaitlin Standeven
Sound and costume design: 
Valerie Calam
Lighting design: Simon Rossiter

Imagine, if you will, a woman with the ability to power her heart’s  blood flow out and in turn, to retrieve all the body’s blood back to the heart chambers.  “As she shall obtain such command of her mass vein passageways”  is an unraveling and despairing duet between a dancer and the desire to control. This is not a pretty dance.  

Lady Baby
Choreographer: DA Hoskins
Performers: Danielle Baskerville, Brodie Stevenson, Sébastien Provencher and Georgia Burashko

Lady Baby follows a woman – her myth, her sexuality, her stories – into the very clutches of any one notion of ‘identity’. Is her identity hers alone? Or is she simply an idea the audience has formed of her through images that resonate with iconic, yet unsettling familiarity?
