Known for its precise and surrealist humour, dance company CORPUS combines movement with theatrical imagery to create experiences that entertain children and adults alike. Founded in 1997, they have presented more than 2,500 performances in Canada and 34 other countries.

In Divine Interventions, a cast of powerhouse female performers appear as goddesses, singing and offering blessings, prayers, guidance and the occasional rebuke to a chaotic world in need of divine intervention. The work provides a sense of magic, beauty and reignited hope that perhaps we are indeed being cared for by something divine.

Anika Johnson, David Danzon & Mathew O’Connor: Creators
Bonnie Kim and Mathew O’Connor: Choreographers
Anika Johnson: Musical Composition
Kaitlin Torrance, Christina Smith, Jillian Cooper, Macayla Paris: Performers
