Basic ONE is a reflection on the fragment state of the future. On the dream we call future. On the fear that lingers around that dream…a dancing fear ever changing, ever loaded with the doubts of being alive and with the doubts of finally having to start the future without knowing when and where to go. A gap in time…a moment where anything is possible…this one moment interwoven with memories of the past in our accumulated and hidden inner selves. A moment that opens up to the future and to any possible outcome. Over and over again. Interwoven layers of moments, travelling more and more into the heart of what carries the present moment and carries us as human beings. A fragmented reflection on the pieces that might be the bricks of fate.
Faith: «I want to believe in things, in ideas, in change, in something, anything. I want to believe. To live for something.»
Basic ONE will highlight the ways that the discipline of multimedia and physical theatre can enrich and challenge creative writing and vice versa. It will combine materials that draw from theatre, dance and video installation. Basic ONE explores the question of time and space and, in particular, the future in which we construct possible worlds together, in real time. The space becomes a place to screen through the past and imagine possible futures. The work arranges fragments, partial stories, lost memories, personal dreams and future projections.

TJLABs would not be possible without the generous support of RBC and the pilot funding we received from the Calgary Foundation in year one. We appreciate this generous support, without which we could not provide space and resources to dozens of emerging artists in Calgary to explore ideas for new work.
