Selected Works

Salt Cycle

… body … memory … water … 

A story of now and of long ago.

 

Unearthed in the space where body and memory meet, Salt Cycle is a ‘solo-duet’ that delves into identity, ritual and tradition. It is an exploration of our relationship to water, and a dialogue between where we have been and where we might go. Rooted in the Songor Salt Lagoon in Ada, Ghana, this multi-layered, multi-media dance piece is a fluid conversation between our bodies and the land on which they live. 

Skin & Body

Currently in development, "Skin & Body" (working title) is an exploration of the complex and nuanced relationship between race and gender.

Perfect Immigrant

Built around Liliona's experience as an immigrant to Canada, this piece asks questions about belonging, citizenship, identity, and notions of home. Part poem, part dance, "Perfect Immigrant" examines the ways we mold and are molded by narratives of 'us' and 'them'.

The River that Works

Exploring themes of ancestral relationship, responsibility, teachings, and the sacred, this piece is a tribute to the Shubenacadie River, and to those who work so hard to protect it.

Resonances of a Warrior Boy

… in the dialogue between past and present, what stories reside within? "Resonances of a Warrior Boy" is an exploration of ancestral memory, a circular pause in the line between past and future …

Tide

The ocean holds a power and a capacity beyond imagination. It absorbs humanity’s hopes, fears, joys, and sorrows. The ocean carries our stories – the collective ebbs and flows of our lives.
