Blue Ceiling dance: 11 x forgetting

11 x forgetting

Toronto’s inaugural season of the Dance 2 Danse (D2D) Festival is on. Also on the previously mentioned Diverge / Diverse series, featuring a selection of emerging and established Toronto choreographers and performers, is Lucy Rupert of Blue Ceiling dance. Her program Fitter/Happier presents an excerpt from her 2007 work 11 x forgetting, also known as “The Radiohead Ballet.” Originally a trio created with dancers Jennifer Bolt and Barbara Pallomina (when Rupert’s arm was broken), it has since been performed in solo and duet excerpts as well. According to the company’s website, the work explores “trauma and loss in amnesiacs and the incoherency of our mundanely damaged brains to the music of Radiohead.” Be sure to catch the whole series running at the Winchester Street Theatre, August 19th, 21st and 22nd.
