The School of Toronto Dance Theatre presents the graduating class of our three year Professional Training Program in ACCELERATION 2018, an evening of small ensemble works.

ACCELERATION 2018 will feature a new work by Allison Cummings, a Toronto-based multidisciplinary creator and graduate of the School, and a new quartet by the renowned Canadian choreographer Robert Desrosiers, who is admired for his startling imagination and originality. The evening will also include a new dance work by the talented School alumna Jasmine Ellis, a choreographer and filmmaker currently working in Munich. We will present a dynamic piece for eight dancers by Roderick George, the creative mind behind Berlin-based kNonAme Artist Collective. Finally we will remount Christopher House’s eloquent and beautiful duet from Fjeld (1990), inspired by images from Symbolist paintings.

The School’s mid-season show gives graduating students valuable experience working in focused ensemble settings. By rehearsing small-cast repertory, students have the opportunity to both learn choreography and receive personal coaching that emphasizes interpretive and performance skills.
