Earth's Shadow
Performing Arts

20 - Chalmers House
20 St. Joseph Street

The transfiguration of night and day inspire a stunning array of music and dance. Moving through the performance space, visitors will experience the dynamic interplay of rhythm, movement, shadow and light. The prevalence of darkness while being sealed in the earth's shadow inspires a performance that includes choreographed and improvised elements. Bordered by the fading light of day, and the sun's resurgence, the artists will express our physical and emotional response to the undulating characteristics of the night which connote fear, anonymity, and escape.
