On Tuesday, November 29 at 7:30 p.m., contemporary dance company Out Innerspace will perform their latest work, Major Motion Picture, at the Fredericton Playhouse.

Innovative yet accessible, Out Innerspace is a Vancouver-based company that pushes beyond traditional aesthetics and forms with unreserved ingenuity. Artistic directors David Raymond and Tiffany Tregarthen challenge each other to commit to their imaginations, combining their contrasting points of view to make a radically intricate dance language that’s both amusing and poignantly meaningful.

Major Motion Picture involves seven dancers exploring timely themes of surveillance, territory, propaganda and belief through eccentric and lawless characters. Incorporating infrared technology and an onstage surveillance system as well as Out Innerspace’s trailblazing movement invention, this innovative performance examines conflicts between the self and the crowd. It raises questions about how human beings want to be seen, heard and understood in the world as a group, a generation, and as a people.

In addition to this performance, the Playhouse is pleased to present a free Experience More! Digital Graffiti Wall at the Fredericton Public Library on Sunday, November 27 from 3 to 5 p.m. This interactive platform is a video system that uses infrared technology, and allows members of the public to create their own content. Participants can write a message, draw a picture, or leave a symbol – the finished product will be incorporated into Out Innerspace’s performance at the Playhouse.

Tickets for Out Innerspace are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office by calling 458-8344 or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
