Commissioned and premiered by Mocean Dance (2019)
Choreography: Sara Coffin
4 dancers | 1 Musician | 60 minutes
Inspired by the landscapes of the north; the history and power of the Yukon River, paired with the magnificent force of the east coast waters Coffin takes on a journey of reverence for the land, acknowledging the wild within and the femininity of water. Listening to the energy held within the land and the wisdom of our mothers this new quartet is an honouring and a eulogy that dances within the poetic play between function and decay found in nature’s life cycles.
