First and maybe last time you will get to see this line up of choreography for FREE: José Limón, Linda Garneau, Jason Parsons, Juilliard School alumnus and GADFLY.
We got asked to remount a short piece from Klorofyl by TOES for Dance, a dope new Toronto Dance company. They are closing their NY-ON tour this weekend in Toronto with the ridiculous lineup of choreographers we mentioned earlier along with a no-joke cast of dancers.
When: Saturday November 15 at 8pm & Sunday November 16 at 7pm
Where: Betty Oliphant Theatre (404 Jarvis Street)
Presented for the 3rd year in a row, Ofilio Sinbadinho’s Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre (CCDT) commission ‘Snkaht’ is not to be missed.
Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre’s yearly Wintersong features works by Santee Smith, Carol Anderson, Colin Connor, Kim Frank and Deborah Lundmark.
