Rupert, presents At this altitude, a self-performed solo. Leary is performing in dialogue with a live citar soundscape. Established performer and emerging choreographer Heather Berry MacPhail premieres the man waited and remembered, performed by Peter Hessel. Half Second Echo, a fresh and vibrant collective of recent graduates makes its debut with an ensemble work, Within one’s Self by choreographer Miles Gosse. Elif Işıközlü, internationally acclaimed film maker presents short films Let Go (2007) and RUSH (2010). Forcier‘s contribution is Levity as IN, a duet performed by Heather MacPhail and Justine Comfort, exploring physical dissociation despite the presence of the other, in other words, in absentia.
