The first half of the show features the work of our guests plus a short piece by Cooper. The second half has a very different sort of groove, a transformation of the space and video installation by local visual artist Noel Bégin. All of the choreography in Act 2 is by Cooper and feels more like one piece or a concept album as opposed to the mixed tape feel of Act 1.
Eight dancers take the stage for this production including Audrey Gaussiran, Marc Hall, Catherine Hayward, Shayne Johnson, Natasha Korney, Dinou Marlett-Stuart, Kaleb Tekeste and Danielle Wensley. The band is led by Rubim de Toledo (Music Director & Bass) with Chris Andrew (Keyboards), Tyler Hornby (Drums), Raul Gomez Tabera (Percussion), Bob Tildesley (Trumpet,), Jim Brenan (Sax, Flute), and Cameron Dahl (Guitar, Turntables, Laptop). Lighting Design is by Harry Frehner with costumes by Natalie Purschwitz.
