Something Between an Essay, a Pseudo-Story About Little Robo-Bugs and Another Excuse to Talk About Virtuosity

By Fabien Maltais-Bayda

Choreographer Antony Hamilton’s “Natural Orders” ends with a cluster of small light-sensitive mechanisms gliding about a section of the stage. While from a distance they appear mostly as points of luminescence, they look, up close, a bit like rubber toothbrush heads or many-legged critters.

A Cosmic Kind of Minimalism

Dreamwalker Dance Company’s Dual Light and a call to criticality By Molly Johnson

When introducing her new work, Andrea Nann is direct and affecting and serves to recast the stage as an “outer space” – a place between celestial bodies and also human ones. The work is part of DanceWorks 40th anniversary season.

Embodying Our Alliances

By Vanessa Zeoli

This September, Harbourfront Centre rolled out the 2017/18 season of NextSteps: Canada’s Contemporary Dance Series that features companies and artists from across the country. The sixth season premiered with The Apology Project, an inter-arts work produced in association with Toronto’s pounds per square inch performance (lbs/sq”). The performances examines the bitter tensions between oppressor and oppressed, citing shame as the root cause of violence and suggesting embodied action, rather than language, as means to reconciliation.
