Premiers FEBRUARY 22 - 24, 2024

The Gardener and the Horse, a raw exploratory duet created and performed by Michael Caldwell and Gerry Trentham, is off to Buenos Aries. In residence at the Armando Centre, their exploration with be with the local community between Thurs. Feb 22 and Sat. Feb 24 and open to an international audience on Feb 24.


Stay tuned for the live streamed public experiment on Feb 24 as virtual and live join into the intimacy of Michael and Gerry's queer sanctuary. As they move through transitions of aging with humour and blunt presence they question each’s perspectives on life, love, art and dance. They find the edge of where their queerness has been contained, subdued or sabotaged and challenge each other to jump.
