The description of this Item
Coming Out of Chaos was a collaborative, explorative, turbulent choreographic work by Karen Jamieson that explored themes of life in the 20th century. The experience of creating Coming Out of Chaos led the group of artists to disperse and pursue their own creative projects, with Karen Jamieson forming her own company, Karen Jamieson Dance, the following year.
