For everyone who’s ever fallen in love and ended up feeling like a cake
left out in the rain, MacArthur Park Suite: A Disco Ballet is a fabulous
theatrical ballet/jazz/modern dance fantasia on love and heartbreak set to
the pounding music of Donna Summer.

Originally performed to standing ovations at Buddies in Bad Times’ Rhubarb
Festival, MacArthur Park Suite: A Disco Ballet comes to SummerWorks in a
newly expanded, two-part production complete with tambourines, tutus… and
sweet green icing, flowing down.

MACARTHUR PARK SUITE is set in the 1970s, when euphoric disco ecstasy reigns
supreme. The tail end of a broken romance frames a flashback: amongst
friends, two hearts come together as sequins, bright lights, and lamé shine
while cocaine flies in the air like snow. Time stops for their one of a kind
love, before it falls apart in a dramatic and passionate pas de deux.

I FEEL LOVE: REFLECTIONS ON LOVE, LUST, AND LONGING is an introspective and
personal meditation on love and its implications by the members of the
company as they take a peek inside each other’s hearts: is love the same
for everyone? What does it truly mean to feel love?

Choreographers Ryan G. Hinds (Buddies in Bad Times resident artist;
lemonTreeCreations’ MSM [men seeking men]; 2015 Fringe Hit Starry Notions)
and Nicole Rose Bond (Toronto Dance Theatre; Dance Theatre David Earle; Danny
Grossman Dance Company) are joined on stage by dancer/dramaturge Dylan
Shumka-White and dancers Shakeil Rollock, Cheryl Chan and Raya Facey.
