New Works and The Dance Centre presents:


Family Room is a poignant dance theatre piece choreographed by Marissa Wong which explores immigrant life and cultural identity – and the complexities of her Chinese-Canadian upbringing and navigating her parents' divorce. The innovative set design transforms the stage into a living room each piece of furniture symbolizing familial connection and a foundation for interactions told through movement and text. Performed by three versatile dancers Family Room is a deeply personal and intimate work which touches on universal themes including frustration belonging and love.

The Falling Company is a nonprofit dance company under the direction of Marissa Wong. Formerly known as the response and founded by Amber Funk Barton the company provides a homebase for creative work from a singular woman of colour.
