Guelph Dance is very excited to be partnering with IF 2020 to present a new work by local dance artist Lynette Segal and her daughter Isabel Segal-Grossman.
Suspended by Lynette Segal & Isabel Segal-Grossman
During the uncertainty of the COVID shutdown, I supported my family, and was in turn supported by them. We inhabited the space between peaceful and fractious, with love in our hearts. I threw myself into gardening, cycling, hiking, finding home by the river, on the country roads, in the dappled light of the forests; suspended, yet witnessing life unfold.

Performed by myself and Isabel.
