Toronto Dance: REAson d'etre Dance Productions' Unravelling the Tight Weave June 23 - 26

From a media release - I'll be checking this out later this week:

REAson d’etre dance productions  presents
Unravelling The Tight Weave

June 36 to 26 - Winchester Theatre - Toronto

a new choreographic work by Kathleen Rea including a participatory knitting/dance installation outside the theatre

Toronto - VIVID4 is the fourth incarnation of VIVID, an intensely engaging performance by critically acclaimed and DORA-nominated REAson d'etre dance productions

Three larger-than-life balls of yarn. A scarf that spans the width of the stage. Twelve dancers, ages 20 to 60, knit and unravel physically and emotionally as they travel through the piece, searching for their connecting thread.

Yves Candau, Miranda Forbes, Samantha Farruggio, Janet Johnson, Karen Kaeja, Kirstie Keenan, Suzanne Liska, Sarah MacDonald, Jessica Runge, Holly Small, Teisha Smith and Lee Walder.

Choreographer’s Biography:
Kathleen recently won the K.M Hunter dance award and was nominated for a 2009 DORA for outstanding choreography. She is a former National Ballet Company of Canada ballerina who is now a doyenne of contact dance. Rea creates dance-theatre combining contrasting influences of ballet and contact dance with her own style and artistic sense. Her choreography is human and character-driven and physically embodied. The dancers move every cell in their bodies. You will feel as if your own body moves with the dancers, and that your heart has had a workout.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
