The journey to create Always With Me has been a long one. Since the desk entered our lives almost three years ago it has travelled all over Toronto. Excerpts of the piece have been presented at Newfound Dance’s Movement Market, Emma Letki’s Fall Dances, Series 808’s Choreographic Performance Workshop, The Chimera Project’s FRESH BLOOD, The Space’s Seen But Not Heard art party and The Attic Arts Hub’s Hub Hop (have we mentioned it has been a long journey?) And now the full length version is finally premiering in Toronto on April 15th and 16th at Hub14! Performances will be at 8pm both nights and we will also have a LATE NIGHT SHOW ON SATRUDAY AT 10PM!
Always With Me is a duet by myself and my work desk. Through conversations with the audience and my inanimate dance partner I expose the most intimate relationships in my life and wonder if I give them the full attention they deserve. Part biography, part social commentary, Always With Me, leaves one questioning if the communication tools we have developed in the last century are helping or hindering our ability to connect to one another.
I will also be presenting a work-in-progress version of Rotation(s). An ensemble work being performed by Rachel Cornejo, Hannah Schallert, Grace Smith Denise Solleza and Oriah Wiersma.
