CHOREOGRAPHER / FILMMAKER
PERFORMANCE PROJECT CURRENTLY IN CREATION
NIGHTLIGHT is a 50-min duo between choreographer/dancer George Stamos and drummer Remy Saminadin, drawing upon the unique and contrasting qualities of nocturnal human sensations.
NIGHTLIGHT is inspired by the restful, agitated, and exhilarating qualities of life at night. Whether seen through the lens of contemplative solitude or vibrant nightlife, NIGHTLIGHT interplays between public revelry and private repose. From the calming cocoon of a nightlight to the hypnotic intensity of club dancing, this solo evokes how we all move towards nocturnal rituals that make us feel safe. The NIGHTLIGHT project received support from the Canada Council for the Arts and is a co-production with Agora de la Danse. This work was created during residencies with Nyata Nyata, Par BLeux and Agora de la Danse in 2021.

In this rare and vulnerable portrait of Burnett, vivid imagery and Archie’s narration come together to tell his story of strength, resilience, and unwavering fierceness.
Vogue and Waacking artist Archie Burnett is a celebrated performer, master teacher and iconic knowledge keeper who carries the roots of club culture.
