Company 605

What: This collaborative piece is built upon shared desires: to keep the conversation moving, to change what feels stuck or stagnant, to practice empathy and become better listeners, and to keep an authentic autonomy and group intention at play. Set in an environment striving to be in continuous transformation, the performers take charge of lighting and sound, shifting the movement in reaction to one another and the changing space. This creates a responsive, improvised state for those onstage and an enlivened experience for those witnessing.

Time: 8 pm
Where: Shadbolt Centre for the Arts – 6450 Deer Lake Avenue, Burnaby
