locus plot is a dynamic new, full-evening work inspired by pristine mathematical equations  intensified by voice, live music and charged physical interactions.

Legendary dance artist Peggy Baker deepens her artistry as an ensemble choreographer with this ambitious new show, her first full-length ensemble work in a rich and varied 40-year career previously dedicated to the creation and performance of solo works.

For locus plot, "I'm spinning off on pristine mathematical equations that describe movement in space," enthuses Baker. Five exceptional company dancers  Ric Brown, Sarah Fregeau, Kate Holden, Sean Ling and Sahara Morimoto  disrupt the underpinnings of schematic mathematical formulae as they explode, collapse and slide into dramatic dance-theatre scenes, while handwritten equations and locus diagrams are projected over the stage.

Baker enlisted three brilliant artists in the development of locus plot. Mathematician John Mighton (Governor General's Award-winning playwright) helped her navigate the mathematics that inspired the movement, while vocalographer Fides Krucker brings, according to Baker, a new "dimension into my work through vocalization, and it's been transformative for me." Pianist and electronic music composer John Kameel Farah created the score, which he performs live.

Costumes are by Robyn Macdonald and lighting design is by Marc Parent, who won a 2013 Dora Award for Baker's Stereophonic and was nominated in 2014 for Peggy Baker's Aleatoric Duet No.2 (he:she).
