John is a memoir of choreographer/creator Helen Walkley’s oldest brother John, who disappeared from Vancouver in May 1969, never to be heard from again. Walkley sourced her material from an archive of family letters dating from 1959 to 2010, which document the years leading up to his disappearance, his medical history, police reports, and the subsequent tracking her parents did of his disappearance. Performed by two of the top dance and theatre artists of their generation in Western Canada, John is a profoundly moving and strikingly relevant piece that resonates long after the curtain falls. Walkley weaves text with movement seamlessly, in this perfect jewel of dance theatre. John was 23 at the time of his disappearance. Walkley was 13.
