Concussion: a Dance Theatre Performance by Stacey Horton

June 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- FREE

Concussion by Stacey Horton

When a set piece came crashing down on Victoria-based dance artist and choreographer Stacey Horton’s head during a rehearsal a few years ago, little did she know the injury would have not only a profound effect on her entire life but also become the basis for her next creative work.

 Inspired and informed by Horton’s personal experience, Concussion uses dance, music and voice to evoke the disorienting, frightening experience of coping with multiple concussions. Ping pong balls scatter around the stage, representing disparate memories, and anyone whose life has been touched by concussion—or indeed by brain conditions such as dementia, stroke, or traumatic brain injuries—will relate to this nuanced, at times humorous, and always-honest tale of memory, loss, trauma, making connections, and accepting change.

 After making its workshop debut in 2017 in Dance Victoria’s Studios, Concussion then travelled to Berlin in the summer of 2018, thanks to funding from Dance Victoria’s Chrystal Dance Prize. It was there that she worked with renowned German dramaturge Gabi Beier before performing the piece at Berlin’s ada studio. Horton has also performed Concussion at the Cultch in Vancouver for the BC Brain Injury Association. In January 2019, Concussion premiered in Victoria with four sold-out shows at The Intrepid Club.

Stacey will be sharing her personal experience and answer questions from the audience immediately following the performance.

Limited seating available. Check-In begins at 6:30 pm.
