Swan Lake Syndrome

By Rachel Silver Maddock
Swan Lake Syndrome - The Island


Swan Lake Syndrome is a new collaborative work by Toronto performing artist Linnea Swan and CORPUS Dance Projects Artistic Director David Danzon.

The forty-minute solo performed by Swan is an autobiography of the highs and lows of a life and career in dance. Starting from her experience as a Swan wanting to be swan in Swan Lake and her now over two-decades-long career in modern and contemporary dance – all tied together with theatrical edge.

This collaboration with Danzon is infused with surrealism, comedy and audience interaction. It brings to light the realities of a career in the performing arts.

Swan Lake Syndrome runs May 27 through 29 as a free event at Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre.
