Make dance. Film stuff. Breed music. Each collides into the other. Not necessarily in that order.
The Toronrto/Hamilton-based Looking Sea Collective shares an understanding that the intertwining of various disciplines creates layered works that encourage a more reflective and contemplative experience, causing audiences to connect their own experiences with those on the stage. They envision an artistic forum that continually challenges and redefines the conventions of performance. Total respect, trust and equal voice among the collaborators are hallmarks of the Collective’s process.
