About The Work

Crave is: poignant, romantic, whimsical and chaotic—a duet that mines intimacy while navigating loneliness, unsettledness, and the hope that keeps us hanging on. Sarah Shugarman’s stunning score is brought to life by a live string quartet. As part of the pre-show, audience members are invited to join the dancing on stage with intimate dance on stage with a partner, friend, or stranger.

Nominated for 4 Dora Mavor Moore Awards.

Winner for Outstanding Male Performance.

“Crave is a poignant exploration in all its sweet and hideous colours . . .absolutely haunting.”

- The Globe and Mail

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF TRADITIONAL LAND

Kaeja d’Dance would like to acknowledge that we are situated upon traditional territories. Our artists, collaborators, staff and team are grateful to be creating art on this land that has been nurtured by recorded and unrecorded human activity for by thousands of years. We honour and respect the traditional lands and waterways of the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and the Métis Nation. We are in the 'Dish with One Spoon' territory - a treaty between these nations reflecting a commitment to share the territory and protect the land. We also recognize the enduring presence of diverse Indigenous peoples on this land.
