Dancing Monkey Laboratories



Dancing Monkey Laboratories is a performance collective led by scientists Mike Czuba, Larry Lamont, Melissa Tuplin and Nathaniel Schmidt, who explore, research, discover and deconstruct what theatre can be. Founded in Montréal, Dancing Monkey Laboratories also runs out of Calgary where their high-energy and interdisciplinary performance, We Must Collide, appears at the Fluid Festival October 15. We Must Collide explores stillness and the desire for touch. “With modern technology literally pulling us apart, we must physically collide into each other to be noticed, felt and seen,” says the company of the free noon-hour performance at The Cathedral Church on the corner of 7 Ave and 1 Street SE. This video is the group’s short film based on their play Satellites


Also featured at Calgary’s 2014 Fluid Festival, running October 14-26, is Israeli ensemble L-E-V; Tentacle Tribe – Emmanuelle Lê Phan and Elon Höglund – with Calgary’s Tony Tran and Tara Wilson; Winnipeg Contemporary Dancers; Alison Cummings and Sore for Punching You; Katie Ward; and Catherine Hayward and Shayne Johnson. Other festival highlights include Urban Culture Cabaret, Physical Therapy Cabaret and containR, the village of pop-up venues made up of redesigned and repurposed shipping containers.
