DanceWorks presents La Otra Orilla in
as part of Harbourfront Centre's NextSteps
Choreographed by Myriam Allard
DanceWorks, Toronto’s longest-running contemporary dance series, proudly presents Montreal’s acclaimed La Otra Orilla in HomoBLABLAtus, a new piece that questions the relationship between emptiness and excess in a world brimming with symbols.
La Otra Orilla reshapes the timeless and universal art of flamenco for the 21st century with a truly trans-disciplinary vision of the art form – tapping into its roots while anchoring it firmly in the present.
Paula Citron of the Globe and Mail says of La Otra Orilla: “Flamenco on the wild side. Montreal dancer and choreographer Myriam Allard and French singer Hedi (El Moro) Graja leave audiences stunned by the ferocity of their performances.”
Aline Apostolska of Montreal’s La Presse notes: “Myriam Allard is a magnificent flamenco dancer – energetic, magnetic, respectful of formal purism and completely free in reinterpreting tradition with her resolutely contemporary vision.”
HomoBLABLAtus runs February 15-16, 2013 at the Harbourfront Centre’s Enwave Theatre. For tickets, call 416-973-4000 or visit danceworks.ca.
