Little Pear Garden Dance Company presents the world premiere of Spectrum of Connection. 

Join us at Betty Oliphant Theatre for the world premiere of our full-length production of Spectrum of Connection, choreographed by Little Pear Garden’s Artistic Director Emily Cheung. A piece is inspired by Chinese calligraphy, a form of communication from thousands of years ago, but is also seen as a form of art. Spectrum of Connection touches on the concept of globalization, the way people travel and migrate from one place to another. From losing contact in the past and reuniting or forming new connections in the future; taking a look into different forms of communication stemming from our history to our present time. This piece talks about our goals, dreams, and hopes to ease our communication. 

For three nights only, October 19th- 21st 2023,  experience Spectrum of Connection, featuring originally composed music by Tony K. T. Leung

Dancers: Zachary Cardwell, Sarah Di Iorio, Maclean Frey, Sebastian Hirtenstein, Lu Li, Aryana Malaekzadeh and Caitlin Meyer. 

I get goosebumps all over!

Spectrum of Connection is a new full-length production choreographed by Little Pear Garden Dance Company’s Artistic Director and choreographer, Emily Cheung. The new work touches the concept of globalization and the way people travel and migrate. From losing contact in the past to forming new connections in the future, Cheung looks into different forms of communication originating from our history to our present time. She employs the fluidity of Chinese calligraphy as an inspiration in her creative work and as means of connecting space and time.

Spectrum of Connection will take you on a journey on how we view communication and interact with one another. The new work exposes our unique desires for physical human connections while living in a world that is dominated by technology and the internet. The various aspects of public controls and social expectations are also expressed throughout ‘Spectrum of Connection’. To faithfully discover one’s true self in real life, one must form many different connections through one’s journey in life.
