We enter into a chaotic landscape. Filled with ambiguity, off-beat humour and colourful perversion. Searching boundaries and desires, restraints and fears pertaining to freedom of expression, this new creation explores instinctual reactions within a universe of personalized confinement. Floating through various states, the unorthodox characters navigate through and indulge in their psychosis. A voyeuristic journey for the viewer.

“TAME was exciting in the way characterization and media such as props and music were used to discover different experiences of individuals and the space they inhabit. Subtle movements and sounds were juxtaposed with dazzling and bizarre displays of energy to create an enchanting and provocative experience.” – by Evelyn Goessling, The McGill Tribune, November 3, 2015
