two new works by dance artists from across Alberta

“A Meditation on the End,” by Jo-Lee

Performance & Choreography: Pam Tzeng
Sound Design: Krzysztof Sujata
Dramaturgy: Andy Curtis

“A Meditation on The End,” by Jo-Lee is a dark and playful exploration of mortality. With death in arms, then at her feet, Jo-Lee muses on what has given her unconventionally conventional life meaning. With this new work, Tzeng leaps into the fragmented memories of an imagined “other,” crafting a poetic and humorous theatrical dance that embraces existential longing and the certainty of uncertainty.

vulnerable and soft and strange and stomping

Performance & Choreography: Aimee Rushton
Sound Design: Aaron Macri
Development Credits: Good Women Dance Collective, Matthew MacKenzie, Mia Rushton, and Eric Moschopedis

vulnerable and soft and strange and stomping explores what it means to be a champion of the difference between our past and present identities. How does the body express that ultra-thin distance from then to now? Using fragments of the artist’s personal writing, biographical details, and literary references to create a soundscape that is coherent and at times a disorienting crescendo, vulnerable and soft and strange and stomping aims to address notions of identity and radical self-acceptance. Aimee Rushton was the recipient of the 2016 Good Women New Work Award.
