Admission is free. Don't miss this exciting preview of the work as Christopher House and the artists participate in a behind-the-scenes conversation about the making of the work.
Originally staged in 2014, this remount features twelve dancers' bodies snaking through time, space and rhythm in a kinetic conversation with the sonic murmurs of Toronto-based electronic composer Thom Gill.
Thom Gill is a mercurial musical force, appearing in many forms and furnishing a variety of vibes, exploring the flexibility of song and sound. Since graduating from the University of Toronto's Jazz Performance program in 2009, Thom has performed alongside Owen Pallett, John Southworth, Katie Stelmanis (Austra), Devon Sproule, and Elizabeth Shepherd, some of the most recognized names in Canada's burgeoning weird-pop landscape.
