IREDEA is billed as a science fiction rock opera. It is a one hour live performance combining dance, theatre, music, and special effects. The show premiered in 2014 at Montreal's Acces Asie Festival and was performed at the Montreal & Ottawa Fringe Festivals, and performance arts showcases. Ted Strauss was the director and producer, co-creating the show with choreographer Jenn Doan.
