Impulse 2016

About the Show:

The School of Toronto Dance Theatre presents IMPULSE 2016, an ambitious main-stage performance of ensemble works, showcasing dancers from all three years of the Professional Training Program.

First year students will present a new work by the School’s Resident Choreographer Darryl Tracy; it promises to be colourful, intricate, and fast-moving.

Second year students will have the opportunity to problem-solve and make choreographic decisions in the moment, as they perform a collaborative new piece created with the distinguished graduate of the School, Louis Laberge-Côté. As well, they will appear in an exciting commission by Ofilio Sinbadinho, Co-Artistic Director of the acclaimed Toronto urban dance company Gadfly.

Third year students will perform a remount of Danny Grossman’s La Valse (1987), a dramatically vivid and powerful look at the duality between the vulnerability of poverty and the privilege of wealth. Additionally, they will appear in the vigorous and physically demanding new 2016 Kathryn Ash Choreographic Commission by Allen Kaeja.
