About Sun.Ergos

Robert Greenwood and Dana Luebke founded Sun.Ergos in Calgary in 1977, and in the following years became Alberta’s foremost international touring company of theatre and dance. They have represented Alberta and Canada around the world, performing and teaching in 22 countries. Special among the awards they have received from Canada, the U.K., the United States, Poland, Croatia, Mexico and Iran is the Redom Danice Hrvatska s Likom Marka Marulica – Croatia’s highest cultural award – presented to them in 2004 by the President of Croatia.

Sun.Ergos’ mandate has always been to celebrate the differences and recognize the similarities among peoples and cultures in order to witness our human foibles, our joys, our triumphs and our challenges. Theatre critic Louis Hobson wrote of Sun.Ergos, “Truly unique…Sun.Ergos soars above most of what passes for originality in Calgary, and for that reason it deserves our attention, respect and support.”

What People Think About Sun.Ergos

“What makes Sun.Ergos worth watching is the irrepressible imagination and aching emotions of the tiny company. They are free spirits who sing, dance and act.”
"Sun.Ergos is informed by a deep compassion, an impassioned feeling for the value of life…an intense conviction, and conjure up with an almost unbearable clarity the very things that matter most in people's lives."
THE SCOTSMAN, Edinburgh, Scotland
“Under the artistic discipline and imagination of Robert Greenwood and Dana Luebke, the physical limitation of a two-man company is not apparent. With superbly trained bodies and voices, these men are chameleons. No object or character is beyond their expressive powers.”
THE WESTERN WHEEL, High River, Canada
“It was left to Sun.Ergos to provide the most compelling and theatrically crafted work…the most consummate blending of text and technique I have yet seen, a flawless rendering of works that resonated…Simple and direct, Sun.Ergos presented the gems of the evening.”
“You overwhelmed us! Your combination of energies and expressive creativities was a beautiful way of generating ideas and feelings amongst us!”
Inese Vulfs, Calgary
"LUEBKE WEAVES MAGIC…Luebke celebrates movement in a myriad of incarnations…Rarely does an audience get to watch dance this close up, and such proximity makes Luebke's performance all the more exciting. There is no room for pretension…Luebke's array of passionate dances displays pride, joy, reverence, torment and exuberance with equal skill…”
