A world premiere by Artistic Director, Jolene Bailie, featuring an ensemble of dancers, lighting design by Bailie’s long-time collaborator, Hugh Conacher, and sound design by Susan Chafe.

Dancers: Carol-Ann Bohrn, Hélène Le Moullec Mancini, Julious Gambalan, Shawn Maclaine, Warren McClelland, Aaron Paul, Sam Penner, and Camila Schujman.

Driven by instinct, Bailie's new work researches vitality as life force. Desire, presence, and our temporal existence are questioned as the dancers push beyond themselves to become what is vital in the moment.
