Four very special authors - Barbara Blackman, Brian Castro, Gretchen Miller and Gerry Turcotte - tell their own stories about nights spent dancing. Four extraordinary musicians - Sandy Evans (saxophones), Alister Spence (piano), Brett Hirst (double bass), and Philip South (percussion) - bring the stories to life through music.
As the writers tell their stories the musicians respond to the words, weaving lines of emotion and adding layers of meaning. The result is a multi-dimensional performance experience arising from a shifting spiral of text, speech music and sound.
