Citadel LIVE presents

between me and you
Choreographed and Performed by Heidi Strauss


between me and you is a solo work that plays with the inconsistency of memory. It opens a conversation between the real and represented, personal and relational, past and present. Here movement unfolds as response. We witness each other. Momentary points of connection slip in and out of our consciousness so that, slowly, the space between us changes.

Approximate run time is 45 minutes.

Heidi Strauss

Choreographer and Performer

Heidi makes work as a way to examine human behaviour from different perspectives. In her work, relationships form a basis to consider our current social and environmental moment. She is interested in the ‘realness’ of where and who we are, here and now – how we are affected by the world around us. She is interested in challenging how we see/experience performance by shifting the physical perspective of the audience, creating immersive, installation, ambulatory, site-sensitive and digital works for theatre and non-theatre environments.

Heidi is the artistic director of Toronto-based adelheid, and a KM Hunter and multi-Dora Award winning choreographer. She has been a resident artist at the Factory Theatre, The Theatre Centre, Harbourfront Centre, and currently at The Citadel. Her film collaborations have been screened at dança em foco (Rio de Janiero), nu2’s IDN festival (Barcelona), d:mic (Toronto), and site-specifically through Art Spin. She has been commissioned by/choreographed for Toronto Dance Theatre, Mocean Dance, The Frankfurt Opera, The Canadian Opera Company, Volcano Theatre, and the Stratford Festival. She runs re:research, a non-product-based creation intensive for emerging dance artists and is currently pursuing an MFA at Transart Institute.

Artist Notes

I have had a long interest in the nuanced, ever-shifting relationship with audience. Through this solo, I play with interaction to invite a shared, temporary encounter that can touch on affective reciprocity. It is this co-presence that I hope allows the solo to be presented as an exchange with the audience, rather than a work for them.
