About

Choreographed by Jessie Garon in collaboration with Jarrett Siddall, Designer Shannon Lea Doyle, and Dora award winning Sound Designer Lyon Smith, [decoherence] invites you into a world of amplified together-ness that physicalizes the concept of quantum entanglement through charged contemporary dance. This rigorous work is performed in heavy, steel-toed boots resulting in weighted, direct movement and exciting partnerwork. The sound created by the boots is the foundation of a live soundscape, sourced from each performance. In this work the sequence of events is pre-determined, but the timing is improvised. This results in a visibly heightened connection and palpable feeling of anticipation between the dancers as they make real time decisions during the performance. At the juncture of art and science, [decoherence] is a journey through the mystery of human connection and the invisible ties between us.

Thank you to Toronto Dance Theatre for their continued support.

Curator's Note

"In Garon’s work, [decoherence], there are strong physical and conceptual notions that no one is left behind. Jessie and Jarrett pay close attention to each other with a connection and reciprocity between them that seems to be incredibly alive and vital, yet also very fragile and at risk." - Jenn Goodwin
