Trilogy of BEing is a series of solos charting the extraordinary career of KasheDance’s Artistic Director Kevin A. Ormsby. Distinctly different, each explore themes of blackness, survival, love under duress, and the environment. The work is bi-national (Canada / United States) and features a diversity of performance styles from modern jazz dance, performance art and contemporary dance steeped in the tradition of butoh.

Encounters is part of a solo & duet commissioning project – intimate encounters created by exceptional choreographers with whom Sylvie Bouchard wanted to journey with artistically. Each piece is created in an environment that allows time for the artists to delve deep into their creative curiosities, and to explore new ideas and artistic landscapes. Encounters, featuring works by Sashar Zarif and the late Tedd Robinson, is the third production within this commissioning project.
