Your December To Do

Catch the Keys is proud to work with two exciting productions taking over E-Town this December.

Convergence: Where Contemporary Dance and Interactive Technology Meet

Voted Edmonton’s best dance company in Vue Weekly’s 2012 Best Of, the Good Women Dance Collective returns with its second annual Convergence – an evening of inspired contemporary dance performance coupled with experimental interactive technology, December 6 through 8 at L’Uni Theatre.

Exploring themes of modern technology and our constructed versions of reality, the ability to be two places at once, and the juxtaposition of the modern world versus the natural world around us, Convergence begs the question: is being too accessible damaging honest human connection?

A double bill featuring an extended version of Ainsley Hillyard’s Face Time, Convergence also employs the design talents of visual artist Kevin Green, and the use of five projectors, in the new collaborative work (de)Compose, which will see live interaction between movement artists and Green, creating a responsive landscape where Green is as much a performer as the dancers.

December 6 – 8, 8pm
L’Uni Theatre, 8627 91 Street
$20 Regular | $15 Students, Seniors, Members
Tickets available through Tix on the Square
