Project InTandem, featuring dance artists Meghann Michalsky and Sylvie Moquin, who curated, produced, and choreographed the show, is an electric experience of movement and art.
The show examines the journey of self-discovery that every women experiences; the passion, the excitement, the highs, and the lows. Attendees’ senses will be on edge thanks to visually dynamic lighting and effects.

Taking place in the lead up to International Women’s Day, the show marks a celebration of the power and determination that women possess. Attendees will be able to experience the world premier of Deep END by Meghann Michalsky, which touches on themes of chaos, pain, fear, and constraint that humans strive to let go of in order to become the best version of themselves.
“To be a producer, choreographer, and dancer all in one show is the hardest thing I’ve ever done,” Michalsky said in an interview with Daily Hive.
“Most days, especially the month before the show, I had to wear all the hats in one day — meaning my days were 13 to 16 hours at times. My choreography is really challenging, it has mathematical repetitive rounds of movement, so it’s very cognitive but yet still very physical. But I am so happy and blessed to wear all the hats, it’s a thrill — I feel very fulfilled and it provides so much creative freedom.”
In addition to being award-winning choreographers and dancers, both Michalsky and Moquin are boldly venturing to make waves in the prairie region with a passion for seeing contemporary dance thrive in Calgary.
