Susie Burpee and Linnea Swan in Rehearsal for Manga

Manga on Stage


Here's a curious combo: Japanese comic books and contemporary dance. See the connection? Serge Bennathan certainly does. After a successful premiere in Vancouver, Bennathan, veteran choreographer, brings his latest creation Manga to the Harbourfront Centre - a fierce yet fluid duet of epic proportions inspired by the movement aesthetics of Japanese comic books, better known as manga

Danced by Susie Burpee and Linnea Swan, the 60-minute duet is an emotional and physically grueling journey; a dance in constant motion bringing to life the frames of everyday existence.

Manga opens tonight at the Enwave Theatre at the Harbourfront Centre. Show runs from the 22nd - 24th with 8pm performances.

Ticket Info:
416-973-4000
