Tara Cheyenne Performance + Silvia Gribaudi
Thursday-Saturday February 16-18, 2017 at 8pm
Scotiabank Dance Centre, Vancouver
Post-show artist talkback February 17
Vancouver audience favourite Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg and Italy's Silvia Gribaudi collide and embrace in a new collaboration which navigates the role of comedy as a catalyst to understanding and communication, addressing questions of gender, culture and language along the way. Both these seriously funny women have crafted their own expert blends of physicality and characterization to create hilarious but poignant works, which reflect on the absurdities of life and what it means to be human. Featuring an original soundscape composed by musician Marc Stewart, empty.swimming.pool is a cocktail of dance, theatre and voice, spiced with acute observations and subversive humour.
