Toronto Dance Theatre presents the world premiere of a bold new work by Christopher House set to "Rivers," the beloved masterpiece of Canadian composer Ann Southam. House, a choreographer of rare musicality, collaborates with TDT’s 10 amazing dancers to create a fluid and unpredictable counterpoint to this sublime music, reflecting its rushing cascades, luxuriant eddies and quiet islands of calm. Renowned virtuosa Christina Petrowska-Quilico will perform "Rivers" live at each production.
With lighting by Simon Rossiter and set design by Michael Levine!
