During a series of residencies in Montréal in 2019, choreographer Lesandra Dodson, dancers Marc Boivin and Elise Vanderborght, and songwriter Christine Fellows inhabited a fantastical visual world where axolotls swim through dreamscapes, centipedes metamorphize into windshield wipers, and sighs become signs. With a pair of sharp scissors and an eye for the surreal, Winnipeg songwriter Christine Fellows generated a series of paper collages that became the key inspiration for both choreography and music. Aquarium contains creatures both real and imagined, longing for connection, transforming before our very eyes.
