Harbourfront Centre kicks off the second season of TORQUE, an international contemporary dance series, with the Canadian premiere of Simulacrum. Simulacrum is a juxtaposition of the formality of Kabuki (classical Japanese dance-drama), the energy of Flamenco and the emotion of contemporary dance theatre. The performance is based on the real-life experiences of two award-winning dancers: eighty-year-old Shôji Kojima, who moved to Spain from Japan to train and become a master of Flamenco, and Argentinian Daniel Proietto, who travelled to Japan to study the female role of Kabuki.
