An offshoot of the research and creation process for our new stage work scheduled to premiere in fall 2013, Oh, Green Hill! was created for Halifax's 2012 Nocturne: Art at Night Festival in October 2012 and was performed on the steps of the Grand Parade and at the base of the Town Clock, and points between.

Based on the Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe and the fate of the S.S. England, quarantined off the shores of McNab's Island in 1866 for a cholera outbreak, Oh, Green Hill! explores images of suspense and mystery in the context of the anonymity that plagues quarantine victims.  The multi-disciplinary work features professional performers alongside the talented young dancers of the Young Company of Halifax Dance and features a soundscape by Ardath Whynacht and Chris Pauley, visual imagery by Peter Dykhuis, and choreography by Lisa Phinney Langley and Sarah Rozee.
