Description
A commission from National Gallery of Canada to create a site-specific work to accompany a show on Emily Carr, lead to the creation of Passage by Karen Jamieson. The focus of the work was to develop the dancers as conduits for the spirit of the architectural space by Moshe Safdie, and how the audience could encounter this spirit through their own bodies as they occupied the same space as the dancers. The company was given a four-week residency in the gallery to create the work on site, followed by a two-week performance run.
