TDT presents the critically acclaimed duet Marienbad, created and performed by Christopher House and writer/theatre maker/multimedia artist Jordan Tannahill.

 A playful, wayward dance, Marienbad places two queer men in a landscape of shifting meanings and intentions. The alignment of the theatre is reversed, with the audience seated onstage and the performance unfolding on the suspended risers; these 'floating terraces' allow for a radical use of space including punishing full-bodied encounters with gravity and gentle rituals of control.

Marienbad is a funny, menacing, intimate and deeply human mapping of an indefinable relationship. An important work.

 "Tannahill and House push their bodies to the limit." (NOW)

“Elusive yet compelling.” (Toronto Star)
