Mercurials

New Creation by Lydia Zimmer

Halifax-based choreographer Lydia Zimmer brings her latest creation Mercurials a trio of personalities toeing the line between illusion and disillusion. Abstracting the psychological impacts of somatic and grandiose delusion, Mercurials casts a spell of danger and grace in a strange new world.

“Describing an individual as mercurial means that they change their mind quickly and have unpredictable moods. The element mercury is extremely toxic, metallic, and liquid. With the merging of these ideas, my dancers are beautiful, but dangerous…”

Performed by Sarah Murphy, Julie Robert, and Anastasia Wiebe, Mercurials premieres in Mocean's 20th Anniversary Mainstage Production, Fluid Forms, live at Alderney Landing Theatre April 8 + 9, 2022.
