Incantatio (2021, Stage)
Incantatio is a site-responsive immersive performance that brings audiences into the heart of a hypnotic ritual. Seemlessly infusing musicians and dancers through inclusive choreography, Richard Dubgnon's rhythmically charged score will take you on a transcendental experience.
The production is a collaboration between five dancers from Stopgap Dance Company and five string musicians led by the multi-instrumentalist Matthew Sharp, who came up with the initial concept of this project.
