What happened in 2015

So…that was a year and a quarter. I realized I should probably, you know, update this, in case folks are looking me up.

2015 saw some large-scale collaborations:

  • I made the Weatherworn augmented reality app for Anandam Dancetheatre’s performance Weather, at the Bata Shoe Museum. We also used Cohort for all audio cueing and playback in that show.
  • I made the FluxDelux multiplayer dance game / app with Peggy Baker Dance Projects (also using Cohort), which has appeared at Panamania / Nathan Phillips Square, Nuit Blanche 2015, Carleton University in Ottawa, and in London ON with Tangled Arts + Disability
  • I directed World Ballet Day 2015, featuring the National Ballet of Canada live from Montreal
  • I directed Factory ’15 at the Toronto International Film Festival’s BOOMBOX event, in which 10 performers and 10 screen-printing artists took over the loading docks for an all-night art party / activation. Over 200 guests made take-home screen prints of Canada’s Most Wanted (Drake, Pamela Anderson, and Justin Trudeau.

I also had two substantial choreographic commissions:

  • Unfavourable Geometry for the dance:made in canada festival, which explored the world of secret nuclear workplace-safety accidents; and
  • Jacqueries, Part 2 (excerpt) for Dance Ontario DanceWeekend, which brought audience members onstage and integrated them into the choreography (again, we pulled that off using the Cohort framework)
