Mandate: to celebrate the differences among cultures and to recognize their similarities, and to present them with the highest quality of theatre and dance skills, combined with story-telling, musical, visual, sculptural and textural arts.

“Working Together” - Moving the Human Spirit!

Description of the Artists’ Work: Sun.Ergos, a registered, non-profit, Actors’ Equity Cooperative, is Alberta’s foremost international touring company of theatre and dance. Its two artists provide “unique, irrepressible, compelling imaginations” and multi-cultural programming for festivals, television, communities, performing arts series, college-university series and schools. Having toured 27 different countries since 1977, actor, Robert Greenwood and Dana Luebke, dancer, have created over 60 productions of classical, folkloric and original stories, dances and legends, helping to raise awareness of the performing arts with humour and professional skills. Combining theatre and dance, their work sparkles with energetic characterisations, simple and beautiful production elements, compelling movement and an infectious delight in life.

This is a company of which THE SCOTSMAN of Edinburgh has said, “they perform with an intense conviction, a quiet but total authority and conjure up…the things that matter most in people’s lives.” And of which the SALZBURGER NACHRICHTEN in Austria has written, “…They don’t want to be known as preservers of ancient traditions. They interpret the material according to their own imagination…they achieve their own audacious and witty interpretation.”

Residency Activities: Usually, Bob and Dana offer a 5-day residency in any given area, college, school or community. Both working simultaneously, they can teach 47-hours of professional classes in Acting, Directing, Voice-Speech, Design, Visual Arts, Choreography, Modern, Folk, Ballet and Contemporary Dance in the 3-day, 5-day or 10-day period.

Bob was trained at Dartmouth College and the Yale University School of Drama and chaired two Acting and Acting-Directing Programs at the University of Oklahoma and the University of Calgary. Dana danced with The Minnesota Dance Theatre, Sara Sugihara and the Family, and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and was trained in Minneapolis, New York City, Paris, Spoleto, London and Banff.

They have performed and taught in Canada, USA, England, Scotland, Wales, Austria, Poland, Belgium, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Tunisia, Mexico, Iran - and have won awards from Canada, USA, Poland, Croatia, Mexico and Iran.
