Drawing from influences ranging from Charlie Chaplin to Orson Wells, Major Motion Picture explores the themes of territory, propaganda and beliefs through eccentric characters who fear neither God nor man.
In this new work by Out Innerspace Dance Theatre, seven dancers play some fifteen different characters as they struggle for control of a territory, gaining or losing ground as they acquire power or greater status. With a remarkable mastery of movement, the Vancouver company presents a confrontation between two gangs that is rich in mysterious intrigues and haunting images, all set to the beat of a soundtrack worthy of a suspense thriller. A sombre fable with a good dose of humour!

The seven dancers (...) are exceptional movers and you can tell that they have studied each other closely and worked together intensely. The attention to detail, particularly in the hands, is extraordinary.
