The Light Between 
“The Legacy Project is magnificent, by its values as much as by its gesture; Gillis’ disciples are excellent, and this occasion will surely propel them towards greater dance.”
– Catherine Lalonde, Le Devoir
The gestation period for The Light Between corresponds to a lifelong artistic quest. When they first met over 25 years ago, choreographer Margie Gillis and painter-sculptor Randal Newman unknowingly set the foundation for this work like two sowers casting seeds in a fertile field… This project blends into the language of choreography the sculptural and pictorial elements evocative of the dancer’s body. It never ceased to evolve in order to highlight the vulnerability that all artistic research inevitably requires. The two artists are now reunited along with collaborators Marc Daigle and Paola Styron to reap the fruits of their creation.
