Accidental Euphoria – A new dance work.

This past September, Dancing Monkey’s Melissa Tuplin presented her new solo work Accidental Euphoria as part of the Alberta Dance Festival.

A review from The Dance CurrentCalgarian Melissa Tuplin’s Accidental Euphoria, a solo performed with notable virtuosity. Through a series of tension-laden, contorted positions, Tuplin gave off the impression of riding a euphoric-depressive roller coaster. Reference to the medically induced hypertensive crises resultant of Iproniazid usage, a strong antidepressant prescribed in the 1950s that caused intracranial hemorrhages, was Tuplin’s creative seed for the work, according to her program notes. Sensations at extremes of the pain-pleasure continuum were embodied with kinesthetic efficiency, which generated empathy.
