"Ki" (pron. key) translates to "tree" in Japanese which also connotes "life" and "energy from the ground up."
This exciting, original multi-disciplinary performance piece draws its source of inspiration from the imagery of trees. Through an extended creative process and a prestigious, valuable residency at the Banff Centre, the multi-disciplinary group of artists created a series of powerful interwoven movement stories – told with playful, stunning interplay of body, movement, projections, lighting and music.
ki brings together the unique skills of artists in dance, shadow theatre/video, music and lighting to create a resonating statement about our disconnect with nature and the nurturing power of trees as the source of life.
