An interpretation of return. A return to self, a return to the place my body called home not just where the heart is. A place that holds no judgment for who you are and what you chose to be. No Return... no way back, just forward, through all adversity forward.

A Dusk Dances premiere.

New creation (working title)

Choreographed by JosÉ Flores and Gabrielle Simard
of CORPUS collective

Performers: La Pléiade Danse - 11 local dancers
Rehearsal Director: Marie-Michelle Darveau
Music: tbc

In a universe filled with humanity, where the fragility of each dancer is expressed, this work highlights the primacy and the complexity of communication among human beings. Through everyone’s challenges, the body language demonstrates the power of this transcendent communication, filled with truth and sensitivity.

A Dusk Dances premiere.

BOXSET

Choreographed by Throwdown Collective
(Zhenya Cerneacov, MairÉad Filgate and Brodie Stevenson)

Performers: Sydney Keir, Michael Mortley & Willem Sadler
Understudy: Ryan Kostyniuk
Costumes: Throwdown Collective
Music / Composer: Kid Koala and Parov Stelar
Set Construction: Larry Hahn

Set to the infectious beats of Kid Koala and Parov Stelar, BoxSet is an athletic dance for three performers and four wooden boxes that provide a dynamic moving structure for the dancers. Clad in blue overalls, the performers climb up, propel from and slide down their four giant props, continuously shifting them into surprising geometric configurations.

Throwdown Collective would like to thank the dancers for their dedication and willingness to throw themselves into this piece and all that it entails.

First premiered as a Dusk Dances commission in 2011.
