Based on the West Coast, this internationally acclaimed company is comprised of two dynamic choreographer/performers - Dana Gingras and Noam Gagnon. The imagery they cast is gothic, mixed with classical dance choreography against a multi-media backdrop. Their performances are highly charged, physically challenging, and sexually raw, with a style that translates unmistakably on stage, on the web and in print. Robert Desrosiers and the Freedom crew visited with the pair just prior to their departure for a tour of Europe.
