An exploration of memory, relationships, and loss through dance.

Love Locks

The sequel to The Key to Time TravelLove Locks dives into the abstract world of memories. This contemporary dance trio evokes the joy and sorrow of remembering a lost loved one.

The run time of this work is 22-minutes, creating a 45-minute show when paired with The Key to Time Travel. The creation of Love Locks would not have been possible without the support of the City of Ottawa.

Love Locks: About Me

"You may end up being surprised by the emotion encapsulated in [Love Locks]. As specific memories are examined, challenged and re-lived the emotion definitely exudes off the stage"
