Choreographer/Artistic Director Allison Cummings’ lushly atmospheric duet creates a togetherness that is at once disturbing and beautiful. Inspired by Arvo Pärt’s piano composition, Für Alina and part twisted fairy tale, Final Savage Land delves into the beauty and horror of co-dependency and the savagery of survival, taking the audience on an intimate operatic journey to a world where what we overcome may just consume us.

“The work unfurls slowly as the pair traverse a long narrow gallery space, holding hands, scattering then following a trail of snowflakes. Green vines grow delicately from the cracks in the plaster walls, birds twitter. Lyon Smith’s moody sound design supports our premonition that this Hansel and Gretel are headed for disaster.” – Kathleen Smith, NOW Magazine (Toronto)
