Presented as part of Azimuth Theatre’s Expanse Festival
“I am delighted to announce an evening of dance, featuring the exciting work created and performed by local artists, Skye Demas, Sandra Olarte and Tia Ashley Kushniruk & Christianne Ullmark. The participating artists bring their unique histories and virtuosity to the stage in a show not to be missed.
While all three artistic teams and corresponding pieces have their distinct aesthetics, I believe they all address time and space in a way that only dance can. Time and space can be stretched in one moment and condensed in another. I am excited by this possibility and interested in how this is exhibited in each work.
I see Interchange as a young forest. A thriving ecosystem of plants and trees at various stages in their process, available to exchange and share with one another.”
See all curated pieces together on March 24th, March 26th – Skye Demas New Work, March 31th – where the tide meets the stream & Fragmented Journeys
