We find the world in difficult times, where people are becoming increasingly polarized, taking sides with rancour and falling for simplistic solutions.

 

We are curious about how to embrace complexity with skill and grace, and how to stay open, kind and uplifted in the midst of turbulent times.

 

With Moving Parts, we are investigating these questions with a moving choir and singing dancers.

 

 

*Original cast of Mad World included Lauren Gillis, Alaine Hutton, Claudia Moore and Lacey Smith (2017).

 

Special thank you to Mimi Beck and DanceWorks, Katherine Duncanson, CCDT, Dusk Dances, and our intrepid Board of Directors.

 

A remount and a Dusk Dances premiere.
