Chaos is part of Fall Dance North, which has 10 com­pa­nies pre­sent­ing works over three nights from Oct. 4 to 6 at the Sony Cen­tre.

Pi­anist John Camille Serra will be live on­stage with the dancers. “Some of it is very set and rigid, and some of it is very free form, and he’ll be im­pro­vis­ing a lot, so there’s a lot of flux,” says Binet. “We won’t re­ally know what it is un­til it’s hap­pen­ing, and that’s ex­cit­ing.”
