Cross My Heart and Hope is part memoir and part fiction.  It comes from fragments of memories pieced together from a chaotic childhood, from the mystery of things unsaid, from trust and broken promises, and from the imaginings of possible futures.

Cross My Heart and Hope is part of a commissioning project that is comprised of solos and duets of 30 minutes each – intimate encounters created by exceptional choreographers with whom Sylvie Bouchard wanted to journey creatively, enabling all collaborators to discover together.
