Graveyards and Gardens
Graveyards and Gardens is a collaborative performance installation conceived, created, and performed by Pulitzer Prize-winning musician and composer Caroline Shaw, and award-winning choreographer and contemporary dance artist Vanessa Goodman. Highlighted by Stir as one of the most memorable Vancouver theatre moments in 2021, the work examines memory as a process of reconstruction rather than an exact recall of fixed events, embracing the various elaborations, distortions, and omissions. Part dance, part concert, it’s a mesmerizing and exciting collaboration.
