Room 333

A moving and humorous investigation of loss and the beauty of life by legendary artist and Order of Canada recipient, Denise Clarke.

Performed in Calgary for the first time since its premiere in Järna, Sweden in 2019. Room 333 features the “Raw physicality” (Lori Montgomery, The YYScene) of Denise Clarke as she brings a signature mosaic of text, movement and a light touch to the storytelling. 

Land End's Beth Root Sandvoss accompanies performing Kaija Saariaho's exquisite “Sept Papillons”. Sandvoss breathes into the music of the Finnish composer, whose body of work has travelled the world to international acclaim. 

60 Mins.
