TORONTO - Now a 26-year tradition, WinterSong returns to warm the hearts of family audiences with its breathtaking tapestry of seasonal dance. Come celebrate the holidays with some of Canada’s most exciting choreographers, dancers and musicians inspired by the world’s rich solstice traditions.
Includes favourites by Santee Smith, Carol Anderson, Colin Connor, Kim Frank and Deborah Lundmark. Highlights include the return of the company’s 2012 hit, Sknaht, by Dora Award-winning street dance artist, Ofilio Portillo, and a gospel-inspired world premiere by New York’s acclaimed Kevin Wynn.
Wintersong is a family show with works that explore solstice traditions from around the world. It’s a joy to watch the young dancers tackle the complex choreography, which provides insight into how different cultures celebrate the holidays.
