A Dance of Undress and Distress: Ultraviolet Life made its debut June 16th at the Ottawa Fringe 2018
A medical setting, a flirtation with death, an encounter with an oracle, a mysterious mirror and elusive three-way love affair. In a liminal space, Ultraviolet Life explores illness and resilience using gesture and burlesque.
