RECURRENT MEASURES DELUXE (RMD) is a performance piece that evokes optimistic persistence as it oscillates between rhythmic meditation and queer joy. In response to "what does it take to survive the brutality of homophobia," RMD combines hypnotic circular motion and detailed flow with musical support by The Younger Lovers and original costumes by fashion designer Antonio Ortega. The cumulative actions, sound and costuming of RMD work towards progressively balancing the space, and viewers, across time between calm positivity and ecstatic invigoration. Robert Meilleur - Dancer Jason Cawood - Photo credits In a double program with Marie Béland (BESIDE) at 12:45 pm.
