TO Live presents Toronto's best dance, featuring the celebrated Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT). And co-presented with Canadian Stage, TO Live brings works from renowned choreographers Marie Chouinard and Guillaume Côté.
This season explores physical and emotional limits with the return of some of Canada's greatest artists and the debut of world-renowned performers gracing our stages for the first time.
Compagne Marie Chouinard
Marie Chouinard, one of Canada’s most creative and controversial dancers and choreographers, continues to push boundaries.
Her new work, Radical Vitality, delves into her company’s vast repertoire to present reworked solo pieces and duets. Edgy and experimental, these dance miniatures reveal Chouinard’s unique power and vision. Co-presented with Candaian Stage.
Nederlands Dans Theater
A huge success when they last appeared in Toronto, NDT was named one of the “Top 10 dance shows that moved Toronto in 2016” by The Globe and Mail.
The programme performed by NDT 1 will feature The Statement by NDT's associate choreographer Crystal Pite, VLADIMIR by Hofesh Shechter, and Singulière Odyssée by house choreographers Sol León and Paul Lightfoot.
Renowned for their astonishing technique, versatility, and virtuosic expression, the company incorporates visual art, music composition, and innovative light and set designs.
Guillaume Côté, Principal Dancer and Choreographic Associate at The National Ballet of Canada, is one of the most electrifying and in-demand dancers of his generation.
Featuring the music of Swedish composer Mikael Karlsson and Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosma, Côté’s latest cutting-edge creation is a groundbreaking tribute to revolutionary photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, infused with theatre and technology. Co-presented with Canadian Stage.
