The School of Toronto Dance Theatre presents MOMENTUM 2017, a main-stage performance of ensemble repertory, showcasing dancers from all three years of the Professional Training Program.
• First year students will present new dances by two of the School’s Resident Choreographers: a theatrical creation by Sharon B. Moore, travelling “into the netherworld”, and challenging dancers to their dramatic and energetic extremes, and a powerful new work by Julia Sasso, which celebrates our collective empathy and resiliency in response to war and oppression.
• Second year students will perform a dynamic and visceral new piece by the exciting Toronto-based choreographer Hanna Kiel, as well as a suspenseful and risk-taking new commission from acknowledged master Tedd Robinson, Artistic Director of 10 Gates Dancing, and a distinguished graduate of the School.
• Third year students will dance in a remount of Christopher House’s exhilarating and eloquent Four Towers (1993), with its wonderful score by Robert Moran. Additionally, they will appear in a rigorous and powerful new piece by our accomplished alumna and guest artist, Sasha Ivanochko.
