“What is it to be alone”? This question is what shapes Adhere, the first piece in a double bill featuring new choreographies from The Contingency Plan, winners of the 2010 BC Buds Silver Development Award. Adhere layers movement, text and an atmospheric soundtrack composed by Gabriel Saloman to explore countless ways we experience being along and the struggle we face between belonging with ourselves and outside in the world.
The second half of the evening is brought to you by the imaginative genius of Tara Cheyenne Performance. Inspired by religious iconography centering on “Las Tres Marias” (The Three Marias), with a dash of Steve Martin stand up circa 1970 – choreographer extraordinaire Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg fashions this comedic new piece for the three ladies of The Contingency Plan.
