With help from an operations grant from the Canada Council, Mocean Dance has seen a great, busy and exploratory year, sending their unique brand of visually complex, athletic dance on tour around North America. In September they premiered a new piece closer to home, called *Chain Reaction *, during a creation-based residency in Shelburne at the Osprey Arts Centre and in October held their annual fundraising gala and celebration, this year called Orange Krush. In the months to come you can catch them as they head down the road again, performing at Acadia in January and in Fredericton in February.
