Alyssa Martin is one of Toronto’s most promising young choreographers, recognized both for her comedic approach and for her burgeoning skills as a director. In this first commission for TDT, Martin brings her clever vision to a new full-length work, Bin Chicken.

Inspired by her recent time in Sydney, Australia, when she became fascinated with a gaggle of delicate white birds, known as “bin chickens” due to their voracious appetite for trash, her zany new work looks at the parallels between the lives of these much-maligned birds and the behaviour of the rest of us. The score includes Beethoven's celebrated Sonata No. 29 (Hammerklavier) played live at each performance. This energetic new production promises to reveal a completely new side of TDT's dancers!
