For Body and Light Presents: Coming and Going – Toronto Fringe 2015 Press Release

“An evocative, dreamlike voyage in imagination and dance”


Excerpt from press release: 

Montreal dance company For Body and Light has performed to outstanding reviews in New York, Montreal and throughout Western Canada. This July, they bring their stellar ocean exploration—Coming and Going—to Toronto for the first time.

COMING AND GOING is a contemporary dance performance directed and choreographed by STÉPHANIE MORIN-ROBERT in collaboration with spoken word artist and musician IAN FERRIER and performers ALLISON BURNS and LINNEA GWIAZDA.

The show’s name is a reference to the thirty foot tides that fill and empty the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. There the company forged their experience of change into a deep imaginative voyage.

From the glaciers of the Canadian arctic to the coral reefs of Belize, story, music, dance and lighting carry the audience on an hour-long tour that climaxes with dancers overwhelmed by a hurricane.
