Me, Myself & Eye

Contemporary dance

Me, Myself & Eye begins when I am seven years old and am forced to change schools. Nobody knew that I had a glass eye, which I was ashamed of. Until my glass eye decided to have a mind of its own and fall out during the most unpredictable and embarrassing moments. Until I discovered that my glass eye afforded me a superpower against bullies. Until I started digging deeper into my childhood memories to put together this show. Until now.

The Trouble with Twenty-One Realities

Dance Performance.

A mash-up of choreography created jointly by interdisciplinary artists Helen Simard, Karen Fennell, and Jackie Gallant. This interactive show consisting of movement, script, and big dirty rock explores the themes of escapism, hedonism, egocentrism, transcendence, privacy, and free sexuality. The result is an accumulation of sounds and playful, provocative images that—like any good rock concert—leaves both the artists and the audience physically and sensorially exhausted.
