Erin Hill is a choreographer, performer, collaborator, and writer. Through durational practices, she works with her body and life as a site of experimentation, noticing habits of perception and critically questioning from where these habits arise, as well as where they lead to. Erin dances in order to practice a transfeminist phenomenological approach to identity; one enfolded in fluid, horizontal, and somatic states. Currently, her work is drawn to the radical space and shape of imagination, and addressing notions of time as a main site for deconstruction and relearning. As a maker, performer and dramaturg, Erin is an ardent collaborator who finds energy through relation with many playful and engaged artists, such as Jana Vetten (together as Local Business), Nina Vroemen (together as Horizon Factory), Ira Melkonyan (NL/UA), and Charlie Prince (LB). In 2018, she received a Master’s degree from Das Theatre (formerly DasArts) in Amsterdam. Erin currently makes home as a settler in the traditional gathering place Tiohtiá:ke – the unceded Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation – also known as Montréal.
Kelly Keenan is a Montréal-based dance artist and teacher. She has been teaching pre-professionals and professionals both locally and abroad for 15 years. Kelly’s teaching explores how different anatomical models that shape different practices influence bodily relations and dance practice. Strong influences include the Axis Syllabus, Manual Therapies, Feldenkrais, and Material for the Spine (Paxton). As a dancer, Kelly collaborates with several independent choreographers, most recently k.g. Guttman, Katie Ward, Adam Kinner, and Hanna Sybille Müller. Kelly is currently pursuing an MA in Concordia University’s Individualized program, at the hinge of dance studies, art education, and sensory anthropology.
Jon Cleveland is a Montréal-based lighting designer/visual artist. Working in theatre and dance, he has worked with the Segal Centre, The National Arts Centre, The Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre, Tangente, Cabal Theatre, Scapegoat Carnivale, Susanna Hood, Lucy M. May, Rabbit in the Hat, Malik Nashad Shapre, and Kim-Sanh Châu, among others. His design for Tragic Queens with Cabal Theatre was nominated for a 2017 META award for Outstanding Lighting Design. When not designing, he works as TD and head of lighting with the Tashme Project and Lara Kramer on tours around Canada, Europe, and the South Pacific.
Simon Labbé is committed to composition. His research borrows from architecture, cognitive sciences, speculative fiction, and complex systems theory. He uses listening and movement as modes of engagement for the deployment of performances, text-based and recorded pieces, architectural installations and experimental workshops through which he explores different forms of temporalities, relationality, and situatedness. His work engages with the intricate entanglement of agencies at play in our media environments and focuses on the dispositional dynamics that set them in motion. He often works collaboratively with performers and writers and has presented pieces in Europe, Canada, Mexico and the United States. He lives and works in Tiohtiá:ke/Montréal.
