Heather Laura Gray is a Vancouver-based choreographer with a background in theatre and film. Her work combines raw physicality embedded in introspective concepts. The Tunnel explores the mysterious world of the mind and the damaging effects of the ego. Theatrically ominous and haunting, the piece leads audiences deep into the corners of a mind trap.

Heather Laura Gray began her training at L’Ecole Superieur de Dance du Quebec, The Goh Ballet and trained independently in voice, acting and many other dance disciplines. She has performed on stage and screen as an actor, dancer and singer. Her journey has led her to produce, direct and choreograph stage shows as well as dance full length contemporary pieces for the response. Dance Company/Amber Funk Barton, Restless Productions/Claire French, Marta Marta Productions/Martha Carter & Dancers Dancing/Judith Garay. Heather has choreographed for Warner Brother’s iZombie, A&E’s “Bates Motel”,  Hallmark Network’s “Harvest Moon”, Lifetime Network’s Movie “If There be Thorns”, American Family Insurance, Crayola,  Tree House/YTV’s “Bobs and Lolo”, the Fox series “The Killing”, as well as Eco Fashion week’s 1/2 hour contemporary dance showcase for eco designer Nicole Bridger.  Her work has been shown at the Vancouver International Dance Festival, Dance All Sorts, Pop Up Dances, The Dance Centre (Vancouver) and Soundbites Festival in New York City.
