Described by Eileen Barrett and Steph Kirkland in collaboration with Describers UK.
Acclaimed choreographer and socially engaged artist Dana Gingras investigates the notion of borders—political, economic and liminal—and operations of power by exploring their impact on the body. The musical score is by cult Montreal post-rock band Fly Pan Am, with scenography by United Visual Artists. With fearless physicality, ten supercharged dancers perform daring, high-voltage moves. On stage, the lights, music and movement are inextricably linked, equal participants in the powerful singularity of the work. FRONTERA is a relentlessly coherent choreographic and theatrical experience that challenges and reinvents codes. A total work of art that stretches the boundaries of the performing arts with a dazzling, subversive blast of energy. (adapted from Montreal Theatre Hub)
