They may be masked, hidden or exposed by light. They are precise, they rarely devolve. They never emote. They are a blank canvas of abstract gesture, time and space. They are just a version of themselves, once a version of someone else. They are looking for the pleasure in the emptiness.

Mahaila Patterson-O’Brien is an emerging choreographer in Vancouver, BC. She holds a BFA (Hons.) in Dance from SFU School for the Contemporary Arts and studied at the School for Contemporary Dancers in Winnipeg, MB, and at The University of Winnipeg. Patterson-O’Brien participated in Dance Victoria’s inaugural Summer Choreographic Lab in 2017 under the mentorship of Wen Wei Wang. Her choreography often revolves around abstract gestures and projections.
