unmoored

  • Peggy Baker Dance Projects (Toronto)
  • Performed by Peggy Baker
  • Choreography by Sara Chase

“In 2003 I turned to the dance artist Sarah Chase to make a work for me. Sarah creates in a genre she describes as dancestories, and preliminary to working together she set me the task of writing two stories for every year of my life… Sarah and I worked together to distill my writing as a dancestory titled unmoored. The episodes I recount in unmoored describe events during the 20-year arc of my marriage to the musician, composer, and disability rights activist, Ahmed Hassan.” Peggy Baker

“Peggy is a true dance bohemian: she knows how to play up against contemporary orthodoxy and turn it on its head. It’s why she is a great artist…There is always method in what she does, but what she does is always unexpected and always a joy to watch…” Mikhail Baryshnikov

Taking Breath

Created and performed by Naishi Wang (Toronto)

Born in Changchun, China, Naishi Wang began his dance training at Jilin College of Art and Beijing Dance Academy. Performing with Toronto Dance Theatre for 9 years Naishi is now creating his own works. Taking Breath explores how we take breathing and the air we breathe, for granted. What is it like without breathing? How does breathing affect our movement, our thoughts? When does breathing start to mean something? When will air start to matter to us?

Sonderling

Created and Performed by Lydia Zimmer (Halifax)

Moving between Toronto and Halifax, Lydia Zimmer is emerging as an unorthodox dancer and audacious choreographer. In Sonderling she has created a geometric and dark work inspired by an Irish rhyme from the 1700s. This absorbing piece explores eccentricity and letting the dark side out. “When does the methodical and organized become a form of derangement? How do our actions accumulate over a lifetime?”

KINKY BOOTS – Broadway Musical
Aug 31 @ 7:00 pm

KINKY BOOTS The Broadway Musical in HD

Filmed at the Adelphi Theatre in London, Kinky Boots the Tony, Grammy & Olivier Award-winning musical from pop icon Cyndi Lauper and legendary playwright Harvey Fierstein, directed and choreography by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell and based on the film written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth, hits the big screen.

Inspired by true events, this huge-hearted hit tells the story of two people with nothing in common – or so they think. Charlie (played by Olivier Award nominee Killian Donnelly) is a factory owner struggling to save his family business, and Lola (played by Matt Henry, who won an Olivier Award for the role) is a fabulous entertainer with a wildly exciting idea. With a little compassion and a lot of understanding, this unexpected pair learn to embrace their differences and create a line of sturdy stilettos unlike any the world has ever seen! But in the end, their most sensational achievement is their friendship.

Runtime: 2 hours 25 minutes

XARA CHORAL THEATRE: RINGS THROUGH WATER
Sep 21 @ 7:30 pm

Rings Through Water is new creation that uses ethereal choral singing, contemporary and traditional Indigenous dance, along with powerful text and theatrical presentation, to tell three short stories about water.  

It’s a collaboration between five artists – three Indigenous and two Settlers. Their desire to overcome their own embodied prejudices, privilege, and pain is central to their artistic process and to the beautiful narratives of this show.

Depending on its form, water has the capacity to amplify sound, distort it, or mute it; how do we do the same as we navigate our relationship with this precious resource and one another? Together they speak for water, lift up the voices of its protectors, and amplify the voices of the missing and murdered  Indigenous women who have met their end in it. They also offer a reconciliation-based model for Indigenous and Settler collaboration.

 

Creators
  • Deantha Edmunds, Inuk poet & soprano
  • Lisa Nasson, Mi’kmaq dramaturge
  • Sarain Fox, Anishinaabe choreographer
  • Christina Murray, Settler choral conductor
  • Jennifer Trites, Settler composer

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
Oct 26 @ 9:00 pm

Let’s do the Time Warp Again

Campy, brilliant and utterly bonkers, it’s no wonder this is a cult classic and a much loved favourite. The only way to watch this is to sing along as enthusiastically and loudly as possible and if you don’t wake up the neighbours and had a knock at the door from the police, you’ve failed.

It’s quite hard to describe the plot past “Brad and Janet’s car breaks down and they find themselves in a house” because that’s when all hell breaks loose. Singing, dancing, Meat Loaf and a man in very tight golden underwear is just a small part of the madness and it’s very, very fun.

It’s not a movie, it’s an EXPERIENCE. First time experiencing The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Click here for some tips!
