It has been an incredible journey for me the past couple of weeks, well really the past couple of years towards this concert. Performing in tandem with Kaeja and Cloud 9 has been a beautiful thing. I have learned so much about myself, digging into the creative process with several commissions and performing three generous choreographies by the wild imaginations of DA, Lina and Allen. I am loving it and each of the dancers and collaborators.

I feel like I have stumbled into that place where transformation of human, thinker, artist and performer have found a confluence that I am transfixed by. I am grateful for all my body practitioners who have taught me or delivered their talents to keeping my body tuned, all these years!

And for CRAVE, my beautiful dancing duo of Stéph and Michael, along with Sarah Shugarman's score and live string-quartet, I am deeply honoured by what you give to my work. - Karen
