Harkening to the hardship and humour of life, IN ABSENTIA celebrates the unexpected beauty that blossoms in the aftermath of calamity. Blown about by the forces of an extraordinary world, two humans traverse a vivid and fantastical journey of creation and destruction, unfolding in an ever-shifting landscape of fragile circumstance. Athletic and spiritual, visceral and theatrical, IN ABSENTIA boldly weaves together dance, puppetry, intricate set, lighting, video and prop design.
This world premiere is created by Sharon B. Moore for JDdance co-artistic directors Jesse Dell and Jordana Deveau.
