WAREHAUS dance collective is a contemporary collective creating work focused on the layers of human encounters and complexity of human progression. Under the artistic direction of Akeisha de Baat and Megan Hunter, the collective incorporates their technical systems that stem from modern and contemporary forms, giving the collective a unique aesthetic. WAREHAUS is focused on developing new works to add to their existing repertoire, all the while continuing to develop their artistic vision and push the limits of their physical and inspired knowledge of their craft. Since 2014, WAREHAUS has been presented by New Works, Small Stage, OURO collective, To.Be.Announced, Sweet Moves, Cascadia Film Festival, and Shadbolt Centre for the Arts (International Dance Day) and Dezza Dance.

Warp and Weft 
A commission by Vanessa Goodman
Performed by Akeisha de Baat and Megan Hunter
Composer: Sanford
The piece explores an intricate weaving of space, time, and combative narratives. The piece is both physical and intellectually rigorous for performers and audience.
Entrench – Original choreography by Megan Hunter
Performed by Akeisha de Beat, Amanda Damaren and Megan Hunter
Composer: Sebastian Laskowski
The work explores what honest moments of strength are and the challenge of when and where we choose to wear the qualities that we are made of.
