Part live performance, part video installation, Road Trip (Drive-In) is a rear view look back at the journey of longtime friends and colleagues Susie Burpee and Linnea Swan. Screened inside a car, archival footage of their Dora Award-winning performance and ‘behind the scenes’ moments reveals the ephemerality of both the dancers and their craft. Road Trip is an ongoing expedition into the fleeting nature of performance.

Road Trip is part of the Arts Encounters programming at dance: made in canada/fait au canada.

Susie Burpee and Linnea Swan are established artists whose shared artistic history was the impetus for creating and performing the Dora Award-winning Road Trip (2012). Both artists continue to challenge disciplinary conventions through their work as performers and creators.
