Contemporary dance company Toronto Dance Theatre returns to the Playhouse on Thursday, January 25 at 7:30 p.m. during Fredericton Frostival to celebrate its 50th anniversary with a special program called House Mix.
Back by popular demand after a stunning performance in 2014, Toronto Dance Theatre’s latest show features a mixed program with five masterworks from Artistic Director Christopher House’s career. The pieces range from the kinetic classic Vena Cava to the contemporary creations Echo Dark 1 and Martingales.
Since it was founded in 1968, Toronto Dance Theatre has produced a unique body of Canadian choreography, and has influenced the artistic development of dancers, choreographers and other collaborators from across the country. Since House became the company’s artistic director in 1994, Toronto Dance Theatre has collaborated with international artists, bringing new perspectives to Canada’s dance scene.
In addition to this performance, the Playhouse is pleased to present an Experience More! Repertory Masterclass for Dancers on Wednesday, January 24 at 7 p.m. at the Playhouse. Intended for experienced dance students ages 13-17, this class will provide participants with the opportunity to learn from a professional company member from Toronto Dance Theatre while building strength and honing their technique.
Tickets for Toronto Dance Theatre are available through the Fredericton Playhouse box office by calling 458-8344 or online at www.theplayhouse.ca.
