The beautiful and unpredictable terrain of the Badlands merges with vivid personal memories in Stria, a stunning solo work by the award-winning choreographer and performer Marie-Josée Chartier.

Chartier surrounds herself with an incredible team of collaborators known for their contribution to the worlds of dance, theatre and opera and all recipient of numerous awards. Director and dramaturge Ruth Madoc-Jones, set designer Trevor Schwellnus, sound designer Thomas Ryder Payne, lighting designer Bonnie Beecher, puppet artist Mathieu René, and costume designer Martha Cockshutt.
