Behind the Scenes with Dreamwalker Dance Company

DanceWorks is thrilled to present the world premiere of Dreamwalker Dance Company’s Dual Light on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 8pm at the Harbourfront Centre Theatre.

Dual Light is conceived, written, and directed by artistic director Andrea Nann, in creation with dance artists and fellow performers, Brendan Wyatt, Yuichiro Inoue, Kristy Kennedy, and designers Simon Rossiter (lighting and scenography), Cheryl Lalonde (costume and scenography), Joshua Van Tassel (sound), AJ Morra (production and stage management), James Kendal (scenographic performer), and dramaturge Sarah Chase.

Dual Light invites us into the space between things familiar and situations unknown. It is here, that the performers explore new ways of supporting each other, moving together step by step through their own vulnerability. It is a moving ‘concept album’ so to speak, within shifting environments of light, sound, story and memory.

DanceWorks recently visited a Dreamwalker Dance Company rehearsal. Here are some behind-the-scenes photos of the creative process with artists Andrea Nann, Brendan Wyatt, Yuichiro Inoue, Joshua Van Tassel, Cheryl Lalonde, and AJ Morra.
