AMBER DOWNIE-BACK - High tide low tide
High Tide Low Tide is a work-in-progress that creates a liminal 'other world' using movement, sound, and video. Transitory impressions of memory and identity are reflected as sensitive ecosystems that bloom, evolve, and disappear as quickly as they appear.
Amber Downie-Back (she/her) is a dancer and interdisciplinary artist interested in integrating dance in collaborative contexts with other mediums such as music and video art. Her practice examines the reflection of natural space in the digital world. She is interested in the physiological and somatic responses elicited by anxiety, as well as the environments that soothe them. She creates transformative experiences that are intimate, communal, and atmospheric.
Amber lives on the traditional and unceded territory belonging to the Lekwungen Peoples, on whose territory she is grateful to perform and dance.

noble riot dance Theatre - kayla henry (bird lady solo)
For this project, I will be creating and performing a short solo that is inspired by my recent journey with cancer, and how I moved from a place of horror to a place of deep love and balance. I am fascinated by the contradicting and contrasting emotional ranges I experienced.
