Klorofyl: Urban Contemporary Dance (Trailer)
About the company:
Gadfly focuses on studying, researching and creating movement at the junction where urban dance styles (house dancing, hip hop, b-boying) and other praised genres (jazz, contemporary) collide and tune together. Ofilio Portillo and Apolonia Velasquez, artistic directors, merge art with entertainment in contemporary urban dancing, which breathes with a spontaneity found only in urban dance culture. Don’t settle for less than what you truly are worth; dare to question the established standards and innovate.

About the choreographers:
Apolonia and Ofilio, the directors and visionaries behind Gadfly, are now creating their second full-evening production. Their work has been commissioned for Dance Weekend 2011 and presented in festivals such as Luminato, Nuit Blanche, Toronto and Montreal Fringe. They have contributed to organizations such as Keep-A-Breast and Sick Kids. They also founded the Toronto Urban Dance Symposium and the Gadfly Anniversary to create more opportunities for street dancers.
The performance on Friday, November 25 features a pre- and post-show artist talk-back!
