A reflection on what was, what is and what is to come.

Created by Amber Barton

RE/PLAY Features

Two digital offerings for one:

1 – The digital performance of MEDITATION by Amber Barton
2 – Amber Barton IN MEDITATION: A Documentary

  1. MEDITATION is a reflection on what was, what is and what is to come. It is an attempt to use movement to process the journey of award-winning dance artist and choreographer Amber Barton as she unpacks her past and contemplates her future. Inspired by her personal journey as a professional dance artist, Amber likes to think of this solo as an autobiography; an attempt to reconcile with her failures and achievements while simultaneously celebrating the beauty, fragility and temporary nature of the human body.

     

  2. IN MEDITATION: A Documentary chronicles the creation of Amber Barton’s MEDITATION as she prepares for what may be her last professional performance. Created in partnership with The Cultch’s Video Director Cam Anderson, this documentary offers a rare glimpse into an artist’s journey of moving forward to the next significant chapter in their life.

RAVE REVIEWS for M E D I T A T I O N

★★★★★
“This triumphant alt-cabaret proves politically charged theatre can be the most entertaining night out you’ll have in a long time”

TIME OUT

“Hot Brown Honey is more than a show, it is an embodiment of sexual liberation, a celebration of matriarchal ideas and a call to action… It’s not like anything you have ever seen”

Penny Warwick, Two Cents & Two Pence

★★★★★
“A powerhouse performance of passion and poignancy”

Broadway World

“You will leave this show buzzing with energy and ready to rain fire on the patriarchy”

Maddison Miller, The Vancouver Arts Review
