For each performance of Phase Space we are installing four TAD-TARDIS (Tactile Audio Relative Dimension In Sound) seats by Tactile Audio Displays with the help of VibraFusionLab. The TAD-TARDIS is an eight channel tactile sound system for the body. Feel the music improvised live by John Kameel Farah while watching our six extraordinary dancers!
If you are Deaf or hard-of-hearing, book one of these four seats today using the promotional code VIBE20 for $20 tickets! Following the performance, we will contact you for feedback, because we would love to know about your experience!
Watch an example of one of these systems on the video link below.
A new full-evening work by acclaimed Canadian dance artist, Peggy Baker (Audience Choice for Best Choreographer, NOW Magazine 2014 and 2015) Phase Space extracts fragments from across the impressive spectrum of Baker’s repertoire, and then expands, compresses, and reassembles those fragments to create thoroughly new and unique dances, in which actions that were originally unrelated fold in on one another in striking, startling, and fascinating ways.

“…there are certain elements one expects in a Peggy Baker show. Wall-to-wall movement executed by top-of-the-line dancers. Music of substance. Dance pieces whose themes run deep. The overall productions buffed to a high gloss. In other words, Baker is a class act.” – Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail
