"My Heart is Breaking" Music: Lucky Dragons, Radical Fashion Performers: Mandy Chan, Alessandra Larson, Kristin Licata, Bafana Matea, Clement Mensah Lighting: Mike Riggs "My Heart is Breaking" was inspired by Christian Boltanski’s work, "Personnes." The choreography explores intimate human relationships before and after death. Notions of memory, possession and recovery were explored in the creative process, and the piece became a journey through the process of loss, grieving and remembrance. "One day all our bodies will be still, our clothes empty." This piece is dedicated to the memory of Gladys Westerby.+ More details

"As planets shift and worlds divide We imagine dusty plains appearing Through parting clouds in an auburn sky Unexpected forms of harmonious life appear in corners once hidden Creatures explore new terrains and protect identities centuries old We ask for scientific, metaphorical answers to explain away the existence beyond our understanding We stand, we watch and we wonder, and we look towards the Saturn Sky" -Matthew Westerby+ More details
