“Dancing can reveal all the mystery that music conceals.” – Charles Baudelaire

Sixteen exceptional performers. Eight dances: each a world of its own.

Toronto-based, Guest Choreographer, Marie-Josee Chartier, creates a dynamic visual score which enraptures both our eyes and our ears.

Set to the powerful music of Linda C. Smith, Rodney Sharman, James Tenney and Nick Storring, Chartier invites us to witness how movement transforms music and vice versa, inviting us to see the beauty, intimacy and complexity of each composition.

As we visualize the music through the dancers' bodies, each dance becomes a short story crafted by Chartier's contemporary imagination.

Concept, Choreography and Direction: Marie-Josee Chartier Additional choreography in collaboration with the performers.
