Graveyards and Gardens
Thursday February 16 | 7:30pm
Graveyards and Gardens is a collaborative performance installation conceived, created, and performed by Pulitzer Prize-winning musician and composer Caroline Shaw, and award-winning choreographer and contemporary dance artist Vanessa Goodman.
Highlighted by Stir as one of the most memorable Vancouver theatre moments in 2021, the work examines memory as a process of reconstruction rather than an exact recall of fixed events, embracing the various elaborations, distortions, and omissions. Part dance, part concert, it’s a mesmerizing and exciting collaboration.
Composer, performer – Caroline Shaw
