A Contemporary “Kitchen Party”

By Grace Smith

The Dance Current sat down to speak with Caroline Niklas-Gordon at The Gladstone Café in Toronto about her show Words & Motion: an evening of dance and readings and was immediately met with a storm of conversation and a pot of tea – just like walking into a relative’s house back home, where people always have a story to tell and a knack for telling it.

New Year, New Awakening

Soulful Messiah’s fifteenth year By Collette Murray

Ballet Creole opens the holidays by intersecting the Toronto theatre community and the NextSteps contemporary dance series with its annual seasonal ritual – Soulful Messiah. The performance is Artistic Director and Founder Patrick Parson’s choreographic concept of navigating different emotional stages of life and spirituality and how one copes through its peaks and valleys.

Reworking a Holiday Favourite

By Sarah Lochhead

In 2016, in celebration of Xing Dance Theatre’s thirtieth anniversary and an eight-year sabbatical from their previous production of The Nutcracker, choreographer Xing Bang Fu and French Canadian professional ballet dancer Simon Sylvain Lalonde presented a new interpretation of the classic holiday tale with the intention of exploring the boundaries of gender and identity entitled The Nutcracker Doll. This year’s production of the work focuses on the central theme of parenting, exploring how a parent can guide a child to confront personal challenges and realize their own ways to express themselves.
