We want to thank the Theatre Centre and its staff and crew for their amazing collaborative spirit and beautiful facilities.
We thank our donors, our volunteers, our corporate sponsor (Custom Art Concepts), DanceWorks Coworks series and the Dance Umbrella of Ontario for their support.
We thank the 12 performers, plus our team of commissioned choreographer, lighting designer, stage manager, our three composers and the dozen scientists interviewed over this process. What a glorious, generous team!
We thank the National Ballet of Canada, Peggy Baker Dance Projects, Franco Boni and Toronto Dance Theatre for creative residencies along the way, and Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts for their support.

After our premiere in January, we've been hunkering down, preparing proposals for new works and remounts in the coming months. Stay tuned for details on our explorations into the science of rage, elemental atomic physics, and the empty-branches theory of the multiverse.
