DanceWorks’ new season has been announced. Curator, Mimi Beck, shares:
“The 2016-17 Mainstage Series is ablaze with artistic collaborations! Commissions and co-productions are a vital part of the season, with dances created by professional dance artists whose work emerges from diverse points of view. The Mainstage offers five programs of contemporary dance, curated to communicate fresh concepts through movement artistry. Original music and sound design play a key role in the performances, transporting us beyond everyday life. The artists’ commentary on cultural themes and personal history are inspired, enlightened and high spirited.
The season features world premieres by three Toronto-based companies: tiger princess dance projects, Throwdown Collective and inDANCE. On tour from Vancouver are Wen Wei Dance, and in their Toronto debut, Radical System Art. The choreographers hail from Montreal, Vancouver, New York, Philadelphia and Beijing. Touching upon our human preoccupations, contradictions and vulnerability, the works create a delightful expedition – if only you’ll join us!”
