Through strikingly physical dance, Parts+Labour_Danse addresses themes of loss, loneliness, community, and the transformative power of grief. An ode to the unknown, infused with hope.

Parts+Labour_Danse is two choreographers who have become increasingly prominent in recent years. Emily Gualtieri and David Albert-Toth explore the ambiguities of the human experience in high-energy works that captivate and challenge audiences. Collaboration is the keyword of their creative universe, shaped by the contribution of performers and designers intimately involved in the creative process. Efer, their most ambitious work to date, means “ashes” in Hebrew, a symbol of both finitude and renewal. Seven intensely focused performers invest the in-between, a space that is neither here nor there, between the never again and the not yet, the empty and the full. A contemporary ritual that underlines the paradox between our presence in the world and the inevitability of our one day becoming ashes and dust.
