Floating Seed: Chrysalis

By Julye Huggins
Chrysalis (Floating Seed - Darling Foundry)

The outdoor series of the Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival is heightening spirits this week, including a hypnotic aerial performance by Montréal’s Floating Seed. Inspired by Japanese butoh, Chrysalis features the company’s co-directors Andrea Legg and Gabrielle Martin.Alternatively performed indoors, the work takes on a haunting contrast in this video produced and directed by Ivan Rubio. The YouTube notes further detail that “the dancers represent two spirits in an eternal journey of emergence” and that “through its twenty-five minute duration, the dancers portray a profound sensory experience and a rich visual architecture as they suspend, climb, float, and hang in that intermediate state between the material and spiritual planes.”
