... Artistic risk justified by a thought-provoking experience.

... A thoughtful, self reflexive piece about the difficulties of making liminal art…It would be great to see it again.

... Highlights the fragile eloquence of dance…precarious dialogue is doubly communicative.

... Former Dancemakers workhorse Gerry Trentham keeps pounding the pavement with his contemporary spectaculars.

“Shame and disgrace cause the most violent passions, and bitter pangs.”
– Mary Swan, The Boys in the Trees

Choreographer Gerry Trentham returns to the Harbourfront Centre stage with The Apology Project, performing the work alongside Kevin Ormsby. Set in a landscape of art works by Kaersten Colvin-Woodruff, projections by filmmaker Valerie Buhagiar, and lighting design by Simon Rossiter, The Apology Project interrogates the relationship between oppressor and oppressed, searching for the apology that releases a body from an endless legacy of violence.
