Maybe we Land Is a choreographic collaboration between dance artists Meghann Michalsky (Calgary) and Katherine Semchuk (Toronto).
“From the moment we are born, we straddle two sets of contradicting needs: the need for stability and the need for freedom. ” – Esther Perel
Maybe we Land unveils the recurring cycles experienced inside of our relationships. Within the confines of a union, we balance fears of abandonment and vulnerable dependence with euphoric connection and unconditional support. Enveloped and intimately intertwined, we fluctuate between resisting and surrendering to its binding nature.
Two halves of one whole. Rupture and repair. Rip and restore — Tethered together, at times across chasms, only to return, bound.
Again… and again… and again…
