Gearshifting Performance Works presents SENSORIA for one night only at The Gas Station Theatre on Thursday April 21, from 8:00 pm to 9:30 pm.

Works by Artistic Director, Jolene Bailie include: 
A Glimpse into Sensory Life, Infinite World 
Gloria’s Sensoria
Hybrid Human

Tickets $15 students and seniors / $20 regular 

An exciting program of edgy dance showcasing athletic and visceral movement danced by beautifully trained dancers on themes relevant to today’s society. 

Dancers include: Jolene Bailie, Branwyn Bundon, Claire Marshall, Tiffany Thomas, Christie Peters and Krista Nicholson 
Collaborators include: Wanda Koop (Visual Artist) Hugh Conacher (Lighting and Media Design), Susan Chafe (Sound), Anne Armit (Costumes) and Jolene Bailie (Choreography). 

"A Glimpse into Sensory Life, Infinite World", based on Jolene Bailie’s full-length, ten year anniversary work, "Sensory Life, Infinite World", is a short ensemble arrangement inspired by the seemingly limitless possibilities and co-operative relationships within underwater animal and plant life.

The new solo work in progress, "Gloria’s Sensoria", is a theatrical work using text and movement, performed by Jolene Bailie. It stems from Bailie’s belief that one can never really comprehend the depth of their surroundings. 

"Hybrid Human" is based on sketches by Wanda Koop. It explores the constructed notion of robots and ideas around the disembodied experience, consciousness, creativity, alien intelligence, and artificial life. This will also be presented by The National Arts Centre in Ottawa on April 27 as part of Prairie Scene. 

Gearshifting Performance Works sincerely thanks The Canada Council for the Arts, The Manitoba Arts Council and The Winnipeg Arts Council for their generous support.
