Two generations of Canadian contemporary dance artists come together in a program of vibrant solo works helmed by Mary-Louise Albert. Having retired from a performing career twenty years ago, Albert has revived three solos she commissioned from leading Canadian choreographers, for a new generation of outstanding female performers. Joyful, yearning, vivacious, and dramatic, these eclectic, beautifully crafted solos encompass a world of emotions. Albert herself returns to the stage at the age of 65 for the premiere of phase one of a new solo work commissioned from Serge Bennathan; and to mark emerging choreographic voices, Ellis and Margolick will also share two of their own short solos.
Ticketbuyers will receive a link via email, and may watch at any time between December 3-17.
