Rehearsals from May 14-17, 2019
Harbourfront Centre is looking for dancers and movement-based artists to join the dance company of Diorama, from Norway’s Ingri Fiksdal, as part of Junior, Toronto’s International Children’s Festival. Performances are May 18-20 with rehearsals from May 14-17.
Diorama – Show Information
In the Diorama performances, Fiksdal uses choreography as a lens, through which she alters or interferes with a particular view and its context. The performances reflect on the passing of time, on the slow change in landscape, and scenography as an ecological practice of bodies both human and non-human. The piece has toured extensively around the world and this will be the Toronto premiere.
Diorama is a 100-minute long performance outdoors along the waterfront, in fully enclosed costumes.
