DanceWorks kicks-off the new year with the world premiere of Liminal created and performed by Throwdown Collective dance artists Zhenya Cerneacov, Mairéad Filgate and Brodie Stevenson.

Using a continuously revolving floor to alter audience perspectives, Liminal explores the nature of change and what it means to evolve over time.

    We acknowledge the Toronto/Tkaronto as One Dish One Spoon Indigenous territory. We honour the ancestral caretakers of this land: the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat and most recently the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation who have a Treaty relationship with Canada. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work in their community, on this territory. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and future.
