Dance legend Peggy Baker collabed with members of Arcade Fire to look at who we are in the dark
Peggy Baker, Sarah Neufeld and Jeremy Gara work to create a performance about intimacy, identity and secrets
For the past little while, Sarah Neufeld and Jeremy Gara of Arcade Fire have been heading to a rehearsal space packed with dancers. The group is led by Peggy Baker, an icon of Canadian dance. Put together, the trio, plus a group of incredible dancers, are a supergroup creating an investigation into who we are in the dark.
Watch the video:
The collaboration has happened before - violinist Neufeld and choreographer Baker have worked together to investigate the same question. As you'll see in this video made by filmmaker Caitlin Durlak, the movements Baker creates are live-scored by Neufeld, who musically responds to the dancers in the studio. And you get the inside scoop — you're headed to rehearsal just a few days before Who We Are in the Dark begins its run in Toronto.
