Driven by questions surrounding habitual ways of seeing and researching the abstract body, Acorn created the solo work multiform, which has developed into a piece for five dancers and two live musicians. multiform(s) premiered in Toronto in 2015, receiving critical and audience acclaim and the Canadian Stage Award for direction. multiform(s) features artists Jonathan Adjemian, Meryem Alaoui, Lori Duncan, Germaine Liu, Kate Nankervis, Ann Trépanier, Kathia Wittenborn. Opening both nights of multiform(s) is Open Fortress, a collective of dancers organized by Allie Blumas, Anna Mayberry, Lee Gelbloom and Jolyane Langlois, featuring the music of David Psutka (aka Egyptrixx). Open Fortress aims to support its members by encouraging collaboration and sharing space, as well as creating and showing physical performance in non-traditional “Dance World” settings.
