The School of Toronto Dance Theatre presents an ambitious main-stage performance of ensemble works, showcasing dancers from all three years of the Professional Training Program.
- First year students will premiere a new work by Darryl Tracy, which explores the aspects of our lives that have clarity and those where the lines are blurred. The choreography involves Tracy's highly dynamic vocabulary, precision gestural work, and razor-sharp partnering.
- Second year students will remount three excerpts of Robert Desrosiers’ Vivaldi’s Sacred Songs (1997, 2004), an elegant, musical, and demanding piece originally choreographed for his own company. The students will also perform in a poetic and thoughtful new creation by Marc Boivin, his fifth for the School.
- Third year students will premiere a quirky and idiosyncratic new piece by Peter Chin, whose past work for the School has tapped into a multitude of cultural references. Our graduating class will also remount Christopher House’s Barnyard (1993), a satiric, lively piece that explores the nature of relationships. Finally, an excerpt of Brute (1994), a powerful and dramatic solo by the masterful Peggy Baker, will be performed by our fourth year dancer, Amelia Iverson.
