Drawing on an imagery imbued with her personal history, Canadian choreographer Daina Ashbee traces the contours of a vulnerability that transcends genders.
​Laborious Song explores the interstices between the angst and the playful jubilation of a peripheral and naked body.
​Magnificently precise Benjamin Kamino abandons himself to an obsessive repetitive and accumulative leitmotiv. He appropriates the territory, summoning a self-destructive violence that brings about temporary relief.
The piece bathes into being a marshy universe. The falls of the performer are also dives in shallow water. Gianni Bardaro’s music infiltrates the hollow spaces of all present bodies and its throbbing drone slowly dissipates the collective pain.
