- the passing of a history, an interdisciplinary performance


Featuring collaborative, improvised dance performance by, Tammy McLoed, Sarah Joy Stoker and Andrea Tucker, and recorded stories, poems and readings by award winning Newfoundland poets and writers, Des Walsh, Joel Thomas Hynes, Lori Clarke and Stephen Lush.


This work was a live, improvised look at Newfoundland and Labrador culture, heritage and history through story and dance. To a back drop of projected video, experienced improvisers and seasoned performers, Andrea, Tammy and Sarah, fueled by haunting poems and stories of culture and history lost, this is a poignant moment of reverence for where we come from and an acknowledgement of the degree to how so much of it is now lost.


"when it's gone, it's gone..."
