triPOD dance collective (Victoria) and Qfwfq (Vancouver) present a collaboration of improvised dance and music: sound and subtle melodies meshed and intertwined to create an aural backdrop for theatrical vignettes.

triPOD dance collective was founded in 2003 in Victoria by three professional dancers who choreographed both collaboratively and independently. It has since expanded into a group of dancers and musicians who meet regularly to improvise and perform together. Currently triPOD is 13 members strong. Participating members of triPOD will be Lori Hamar, Kim Tuson, Stacey Horton, and Treena Stubel.

Qfwfq is a collective of Vancouver based musicians that works within the contexts of electro-acoustic noise, free jazz, music concrete, avant pop, and composition. Their coming together happened through the close knit improvising musicians' community that lies within the underbelly of Vancouver. Collectively and individually the members of Qfwfq have performed with numerous artists including Eugene Chadbourne, Han Bennink, the Nihilist Spasm Band, They Shoot Horses, the Fernwood Difficult Music Society, triPOD Dance Collective, and neither/nor. Participating members of Qfwq will be Dave Chokroun, Lee Hutzulak, Shane Krause, and Rachael Wadham.

For this particular project triPOD Dance will develop individual characters that, along with the musicians, will present small vignettes of improvised solos, duos and trios that may support or interrupt each other. The musicians will be working with simple structures within a larger structure containing multiple but subtle idees fixes. As an entire show this could be seen as a dichotomy of unfinished events related and unrelated, a thought taken over by a different thought, an idea supported by a better idea, arguments and conversations. On a smaller scale it may be seen as a series of miniatures; tiny compact performances amalgamated into a book of short stories.
