Participating in a Fringe Festival is always a wonderful experience. This year, I was thrilled to bring some dance back to the Ottawa Fringe Festival. I was able to remount work, and create and present some new choreography. The first half of The Key to Time Travel was originally created for - and presented at - the 2017 Dark Horse Dance Projects. The second half, featuring a new cast member, and all new original music, premiered at this Festival.




"what a gorgeous show, full of surprises, and really affecting in its exploration of how we live in past/present/future. i can’t recommend it highly enough!" - Liz


"Flow your way on over to The Key To Time Travel for a mesmerizing experience, quite unlike anything else at the Fringe. Time Travel is to be appreciated for its images of startling beauty..." - Laurie Fyffe the full Fringe patron reviews here. 


"You may end up being surprised by the emotion encapsulated in the second half of the show." - Samara Caplan of Apt613, read the full review here.


Back stage: Elizabeth Emond-Stevenson, Chelsea Passmore, Allison Elizabeth Burns, and Amanda Bon
