The Dance Files: March 1 - 15

The Dance Files is your bi-weekly brief on what's happening in Toronto's experimental and contemporary dance scene.

Saturday, March 1st
Tonight, I'm busting my ass to finish an arts council grant. If I had the time I'd definitely be at this show. It's not often you get to see four veteran choreographers on one stage for the price of a magic tofu wrap. Check out the last show of 'Older & Reckless' featuring the work of Douglas Dunn, Keiko Kitano, Dan Wild and Bill James. Dancemakers Studio. 8pm. Tix $12-15.

Thursday, March 6th:
Always a deeply moving experience is the work of Sashar Zarif. His new show, 'Choreographies of Migration', opens tonight with four dance works. Enwave Theatre. March 6-8. Tix $17-27.

Peggy Baker premieres her solo 'Portal'. The evening also features new work from James Kudelka. Betty Oliphant Theatre. March 6-9. Tix $20-26.

Thursday, March 13th
Montreal choreographer, Catherine Tardif, brings us "Le Show Triste". The show somehow involves prairie dogs, ostriches, a green apple worm, a bagpipe, a dancing beauty and cartoonist Gary Larson. Intrigued? Dancemakers Centre for Creation. March 13-15. Tix $18-22.

Saturday, March 15th
The Theatre Centre's Free Fall Festival is underway. This year they've tag teamed with the Harbourfront Centre to offer an expanded contemporary performance series. Of dance-notable mention is the 'Unsung Bboy Battle' today at the Harbourfront Centre. 4pm. Brigatine Room. Tix $10.
