eidolon noun 1. an idealized person or thing. 2. a specter or phantom.

Bill James’ newest work is inspired by important relationships he has had 
throughout his life with those who have passed away. While it is his first full-length
solo work, it can also be seen as a series of duets with conjured spirits and a duet
with composer David Grenon, who creates both live music and architectural
 soundscapes. Also collaborating on the project is director Ruth Madoc-Jones,
whose insightful work across disciplines has made her one of the most in-demand
 directors in the country.


After establishing an international reputation in Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto as
a dance artist and producer of multidisciplinary events, Bill moved to a farm just
outside Peterborough about ten years ago. Since then he has continued to pursue
his artistic vision, lately by putting himself in his own work. In 2013 Toronto’s
 Soulpepper Theatre awarded Bill the Soulpepper Dance Award in the Senior Dance
 Artist category. That award has supported the creation of eidolon.

“Cam Douglas & Yvonne Leicht are teachers & community activists from Peterborough, Ontario, Canada.  Their daughter Kaia is 13 and son Jake is 12.  They are travelling from Sept 2014 to June 2015, in search of sustainability practice, people and places.   They hope to visit, learn of, and document innovative or otherwise effective examples of environmental leadership (big or small) through renewable energy & conservation, sustainable urban transportation & design, sustainable food production & water use, biodiversity conservation & protection of indigenous peoples, sustainable (“eco”?) tourism, and less consumer-oriented living.

Their journey is loosely inspired by Chris Turner’s book “The Geography of Hope – A Tour of the  of the world we need“.  Chris points out in compelling fashion that all the pieces of a sustainable future already exist … just not all in once place.   The puzzle needs to be put together.”
