Dark by Five – A Field Guide For The Missing

Reimagined from 2015 with choreography from Toronto’s Shannon Litzenberger, this show combines the work of acclaimed poet Don McKay with Aaron Copland’s masterpiece Appalachian Spring. Mask, imagery, movement, and song bring us to the edge of the rooftop where the owls are waiting for us in the dark.


Dark by Five (dXv) returns to Gros Morne Summer Music after a two-year hiatus to perform two interactive and immersive music theatre events. A challenge to put into words, this innovative international ensemble weaves pop, classical, folk, and world music with elements of storytelling, theatre, mask, movement, and digital media in unforgettable experiences. Dark by Five is Christine Carter (clarinet), Yvette Coleman (Vocalist), Paul Fadoul (percussion), Elizabeth Janzen (flute), Lynn Kuo (violin), Kate Read (viola), David Maggs (piano) and Diederik van Dijk (cello), working with director-choreographer Shannon Litzenberger.
