Out Innerspace Dance Theatre
Out Innerspace Dance Theatre is devoted to creating exciting and integral contemporary dance works. Determined to be innovative yet accessible, they push beyond traditional aesthetics and forms with unreserved ingenuity. Through research and experimentation, OIS celebrates the importance of challenging the preconceptions of what can be expected, experienced and expounded in contemporary dance.
Stéphanie Morin-Robert is a critically acclaimed Canadian multidisciplinary artist dedicated to creating contemporary works that blur the separation between artistic disciplines.
She builds, presents, and tours intoxicating productions that are directly inspired by personal life experiences that challenge our society’s rigid stereotypes and boundaries.
She is a performing artist that pushes themes of empathy, honesty, and vulnerability and her past and upcoming Canadian, European, and American tours demonstrate the power of her work to cross borders. Her dance, multimedia, clown, and storytelling practice is celebrated by audiences, critics, and producers across Canada and internationally.
James and Jamesy
2016’s CANADIAN COMEDY AWARD winners and 16-time ‘BEST OF FEST’ Fringe stars, James & Jamesy are creators and performers of physical comedy that celebrates imagination and friendship.
Their shows are innovative riffs on British farce, steeped in playfulness, meticulous physical comedy, and an unabashed love for the unexpected. With endearing characters, rich emotion, and fantastical imaginative adventures, the duo create immersive performances that remind adult audiences of the youthful wonder they still possess.
Touring nationally since 2013, and internationally since 2016, James & Jamesy delight thousands every year. They are considered “one of the most popular fringe duos ever,” by the CBC.
