You may recall David Raymond and Tiffany Tregarthen of Out Innerspace Dance Theatre from their duet entitled Me So You So Me, an audience favourite at the 2014 Dance Days Festival. When it played in Toronto a few months later, Globe & Mail critic Martha Schabas said, “Both Raymond and Tregarthen are captivating… It’s a treat to see this talented and boldly imaginative company touring Canada. Lucky for us, they’re planning another national tour in 2016 to debut a new ensemble piece.” Dance Days is thrilled to have the premiere of this new ensemble piece, right here in Victoria.
About Major Motion Picture
Dance Victoria is proud to have supported this project with two residencies and commissioning support. At a recent Dance Victoria Rough Cuts, Tiff and Dave shared some insights about their evolving work that has seven dancers including Dave and Tiff:
“We’re interested in exploring conflicts between the self and the crowd. We’re asking, ‘how do we want to be seen, heard, and understood in the world as a group, a generation, a people? What do we protest, what do we promote, and what are we up against?’”
Alongside their exploration with how groups thrive or suffer inside social taboos, the creation process also focuses on technical experimentation with microphones, video projection and camera flashes. Out Innerspace is working alongside project mentor Crystal Pite. This new work is commissioned by the CanDance Network and a group of presenting partners that include Live Art Dance Productions (Halifax), Dance Victoria, Firehall Arts Centre (Vancouver), L’Agora.
