Graveyards and Gardens is a collaborative performance installation conceived, created and performed by

Grammy Award winning composer, violinist, vocalist Caroline Shaw and award-winning choreographer and dancer Vanessa Goodman. This new work has been performed across Canada and globally and examines memory as a process of reconstruction rather than an exact recall of fixed events. A dance. A concert. A wonderfully curious analogue-driven performance experience. A visual and sonic album of reconstructed memories that continues to fold and unfold into itself live through music and dance exploring how the cycles of mortality ensure we’ll all “return” to the earth.

“Graveyards and Gardens, a mesmerizing coproduction featuring original choreography and dance by Vancouver’s Vanessa Goodman juxtaposed with a musical story created and voiced by Grammy and Pulitzer Prize–winning musician Caroline Shaw”. Charlie Smith – The Georgia Straight

“What happens when one of Vancouver’s most exciting contemporary-dance artists joins forces with one of America’s most innovative composers? In quantifiable terms, 400 feet of orange sound cable, vintage record and cassette players, thrift-store lamps, and lush green houseplants. All of them create the rich physical world for their hypnotically looping new dance-music-installation called Graveyards and Gardens.” Janet Smith – Stir Vancouver
