Eternal Eclipse

Now that the Fringe is over I have been going through some major withdrawal. Luckily, I have some video that I was able to put together in a little trailer for the show! Lots of news coming up soon, so stay tuned for more on what’s to come next. In the meantime check it out here….

Venus “the Morning Star or the Evening Star”
Goddess associated with love, beauty and fertility

I first choreographed a piece for The Bazaar -Latin Fever called Heartbeat in February earlier this year and it was a piece about relationships. About how sometimes we stay in a relationships that are not good for us. How we can blind ourselves to the reality of a situation and what is really going on around us.

Daniel, Ashley and I all collaborated on this quite extensively since this was my first duet and I was diving into a dance world that was unknown to me (the tango). Daniel and I met with Michelle Mitchell of Rhythm Dynamix Dance in Oshawa and then we went back to the studio in Toronto to create our first version of Heartbeat.

Later I adapted Heartbeat to become the Venus section of our first full length production Eternal Eclipse. I really wanted to put a twist on the idea of the goddess of love. So we went back into the studio and I wanted to make it a little more darker, to flush out some more of the ideas I had for the dance. The dancers worked fabulously on this and I am very happy with this piece reworked.

Here is the final piece:
