Calling upon the wild of our survival consciousness, SHiFTiNG TECHNOLOGiA melds this with precise movement as a technology of the future. At the inner-section of dance/movement, visual art and voice this work seek to evoke creation as communication. …that we ARE the language of our past and also the story of our future.

“In the very earliest time, when both people and animals lived on earth, a person could become an animal if he wanted to and an animal could become a human being. Sometimes they were people and sometimes animals and there was no difference. All spoke the same language. That was the time when words were like magic. The human mind had mysterious powers…. Nobody could explain this: That’s the way it was.”
~Translated by poet, Edward Field in ‘Magic Words: From the Ancient Oral Tradition of the Inuit

I AM WOMB
Choreographed by Gabriela Grant

Grant explores how colored female bodies are crafted and presented in the eyes of institutions. She examines their femininity and masculinity and how this contributes to their commodification. It also explores how this impacts women’s relationships between one another. The work fuses her movement from her African and urban movement training, as well as her modern dance training. One question Grant presents and invites the audience to think about is, “How can women reclaim the power in their femininity?”

Champagne Party for Time Travelers
Written and Choreographed by Sydney Lemelin and Hana Huie

This piece is based on the real party that famed physicist Stephen Hawking threw for time travelers, for which he sent invitations after the party ended. Lemelin and Huie combine theater and dance to explore the journey of believing in things that do not exist and pursuing what is important to us, however insignificant we may be in the universe.
