Seasons of Grief and Joy

This dance showcase features 8 brilliant and passionate QTBIPOC* performers. Together, we move through the multiple and layered landscapes, emotions, and seasons we experience in a year, in our bodies, in our lives. Joy in the face of grief, celebration amidst devastation, resilience and purpose in escalating times of social and global violence, the ongoing entanglement of life and death.

This show was originally presented on May 2nd 2017 at the Palmerston Library Theatre (Toronto), on the 1-year anniversary of Shaunga’s Dad’s death. This was to honour his memory and the year she spent getting to know him in Spirit.
