Din of Shadows II

Our Sophomore event took place on the evening of May 5, 2018, in the form of two performances at Arraymusic in Toronto.  The programme included one work by Julia Mermelstein (premiere), and one work by Quinn Jacobs (premiere).
The shows featured eight performers - including musicians, dancers, and an actor - as well as lights, electronics, a forest of artificial plants, and a jaw-dropping spread of homemade chocolate truffles and avant-garde hummuses. We took our two back-to-back sold out audiences on a journey through crystalline meditative states and turbulent battle scenes alike, exploring the nature of dreams, destiny, and reincarnation in the process.
