On this double bill, Heidi Strauss’ baseline toys with identity and time’s influence on knowledge, while Amanda Acorn’s multiform is a love letter to perpetual motion, drawing on the work of painter Mark Rothko.
“Audience is key to both Acorn and Strauss, the two Toronto-based choreographers whose works form the latest iteration of Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie’s Bright Nights series. Interestingly, this shared focus wasn’t baseline/multiform’s starting point; it’s more of a welcome curatorial surprise.”
