Bettina Szabo’s Habitat is a duet for a dancer and a paper sculpture. Inspired by hermit crabs, the artist moves in step with the shell she calls home. The story of Szabo’s immigration unfolds as she operates lights and music to create a multiform landscape. Exploring somatically in hope of decolonizing herself from the successive layers of cultural, social, and family identities, she creates moving tableaux.  

Alexandre Morin and Jonathan Goulet’s On the Brink shows two bodies excavating a sculptural ecosystem that vaguely recalls an artificial nature. The performers search, examine, and imbue themselves in this synthetic world; an ecofuturistic exploration where the deconstruction of the site, its transformation from one state to another takes the audience into the microscopic realm of sound.
