FUTURE PERFECT CONTINUOUS - PROARTEDANZA
Premiere: Nov 1st 2017 - Fleck Theatre, Toronto
Collaboration with playwright Anna Chatterton on a 35-minute dance work for Toronto contemporary ballet ensemble ProArteDanza. Thoughts for this piece first stirred when reading Naomi Klein's This Changes Everything and the resulting work explores our ambivalent feelings about the future, climate change, and hope. The nine dancers gave virtuoso and heartfelt performances, incorporating highly physical movement and huge amounts of text.
Artistic team: Anna Chatterton (text), Arun Srinivasa (lighting), Krista Dowson (costumes), Lyon Smith (sound design). Music by Minor Victories (Orchestral Variations)
Cast: Caryn Chappell, Ben Lansberg, Ryan Lee, Sasha Ludacivius, Daniel McArthur, Tori Mehaffey Kelly Shaw, Anisa Tejpar, Christopher Valentini
