who we are in the dark

This is an upcoming work that will have its world premiere in early 2019. The piece has been co-commissioned by Danse Danse in Montreal, The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, the National Arts Centre, and Fall for Dance North / Canadian Stage.

Choreographed by acclaimed Canadian dance artist Peggy Baker, who we are in the dark offers the immediacy of daring contemporary dance; supercharged live music; and sophisticated design elements from artists working with pigment, projection, and light. Jeremy Gara and Sarah Neufeld, both members of Grammy Award-winning rock band Arcade Fire, are joined on stage by seven extraordinary dancers in a work that explores and illuminates shifting identities, betrayals, secrets, and intimacies played out in the dark.
