Farouche is excited to be participating in Simon Fraser University's SCA Alumni Dance Lab this year! During the lab we will be reworking and further developing the piece L I L A C, which was originally created in 2015 by Mahaila, Felicia, Remy Siu, Alex Mah and Jasmine O’Brien. L I L A C consists of dance, text, live projections and sound. In this process, Erika will be taking over projections and sound from Remy Siu.
When L I L A C was originally created the questions that drove the piece centred around memory, how a single memory changed over time, and how we could show this transformation visually. After two years and with a new collaborator, we are excited to revisit this piece with fresh eyes and new questions surrounding distance, absence and intimacy.
Big thanks to the SCA and Rob Kitsos for organizing this lab and inviting us to take part!
