.0 (Point Zero) is immediate. The result of any decision has a myriad of consequences. Are we ready? .0 is haunting. The dancers are continuously rebounding and finding stability in a volatile environment. .0 is unpredictable. Supporting the impulsive, five dancers propel, distract, interfere and encourage each other’s choices. Partially set choreography and partially improvised, the distinction is elusive.

tiny is a performance-in-progress, a collaboration with Halifax’s magical Zuppa Theatre Company. The piece focuses on the quotidian life of super heroes — on how difficult it is to live tiny when the world wants you to live big, big, big. In the earliest stages of development, tiny is evolving into an interactive, multi- and interdisciplinary work with multiple media platforms involved. There may or may not be flying.
