Commissioned by James Simons and inspired by the mathematical theory of the same name, Differential…is based on a diagram of a hexagon. Here “Players” travel in specific sequences, where they encounter moments of intimacy, wild rebellion, and inevitability.

Brainstorm May 27, 2012 | ewaltman | More on Performance
Entitled Brainstorm, this piece was presented to Toronto audiences as part of Eryn Waltman’s Company…entitled State of Mind, in which she presents a repertoire of her work that thematically explores the social, psychological and biophysical influences that impact behavior. Brainstorm depicts the challenges that are sometimes faced within oneself. For many these feelings are natural and the choices made lead to positive, healthy outcomes. Some however find these circumstances overwhelming. On the surface they function without signs of difficulty or distress but within they agonize to overcome their anxieties and struggle to find inner peace. They seek the temporary easing of pain despite the possibility of harmful consequences and become trapped within the cycle of addictive behavior. The music that accompanies Brainstorm contains coarse language and while not intended, may offend some of the audience members. Dancers: Scott MacDonald, Bianca Melchior, Jordan Clark, Danny Lawn, Alisha Lucchese and Justin Lopes Choreography: Eryn WaltmanRead More
