as part of Harbourfront Centre's NextSteps
DanceWorks, Toronto's longest-running contemporary dance series, presents Susie Burpee and Linnea Swan in the world premiere of Road Trip as part of Habourfront Centre's NextSteps, running October 18-20, 2012 at Harbourfront Centre’s Enwave Theatre.
Burpee and Swan, two physically fierce contemporary dancers, are two women caught in the spotlight like deer in the headlights. Has something awful happened? The roller coaster movement of this face-off takes the audience on an unforgettable road trip.
Road Trip is an enigmatic, tragicomic duet, realized through a subtle weaving of contemporary dance, theatre and Bouffon. Sharing an impressive artistic history, longtime colleagues Burpee and Swan are fearless dance artists who embody both the darkness and levity of the human spirit - a hallmark of their unique performance work.
