unmoored

unmoored is a new work created by Peggy Baker and Sarah Chase, with sound design by Debashis Sinha. Peggy performs in this piece, which makes it a rare opportunity to see an exquisite performer of international repute perform a new work as she and Chase deepen the nature of their collaboration since 2004's The Disappearance of Right and Left, upon which unmoored follows.

This autobiographical storytelling work brings Peggy's deeply personal embodied life experience to the stage with B.C.-based Sarah Chase's innovative solo research.

Reviews

 
The work is one of total perfection as the heartbreaking text and Baker’s eloquent movement swing back and forth between darkness and light.
