“Peggy… knows how to play up against contemporary orthodoxy and turn it on its head. It’s why she is a great artist…. what she does is always unexpected and always a joy to watch…” Mikhail Barychnikov
Choreographed by eminent Canadian dance artist Peggy Baker, who we are in the dark offers the immediacy of daring contemporary dance, supercharged live music, and exceptional visual design elements. With an original score composed and performed by Jeremy Gara and Sarah Neufeld, both members of Grammy Award-winning rock band Arcade Fire, and seven extraordinary dancers, the work explores and illuminates shifting identities, betrayals, secrets, and intimacies played out in the dark.
