Go Back to History

We’ll be Fine is a work created by Mélanie Demers in collaboration with artists from Good Women Dance Collective and dance-theatre artist Richard Lee. The work premiered in November 2015, with three performances at L’Uni Théâtre in Edmonton, Alberta, presented by GWDC.

As is typical of Ms. Demers’ work, the piece oscillates between extreme physicality and moments of nothingness, and teeters on the edge of hilarity and tragedy, challenging performers and audience alike in their consideration of what we choose to do and say to one another. The work asks us, “Faced with an imminent threat, what would we do? How would we act?”
