In association with The Power Plant

Wayne McGregor | Random Dance (England)February 28-March 3, 2012

The Wooster Group's Version of
Tennessee Williams' Vieux Carré (United States)
March 28-31, 2012

One of Williams' last, elegiac plays boldly re-imagined by the most influential and experimental theatre company in the past 30 years. This radical – yet textually faithful – interpretation of Williams' autobiographical play seethes with sexual and creative awakening, desire and loneliness in New Orleans. Canadian premiere!

Ajax & Little Iliad (Canada)
Co-produced by Harbourfront Centre
April 4-8, 2012

Ajax & Little Iliad turn the ancient stories of Sophocles' Trojan War tragedies into a potent reflection on the relationship between soldiers and storytellers in modern war and contemporary artmaking. Evan Webber and Frank Cox-O'Connell set out to define 'theatre of war' expressly for the civilian population – and to challenge everything about theatre's communitarian origins and radical potential.

The Dietrich Group (Canada)
April 25-28, 2012

D.A. Hoskins uses dance as the material for visual art in Paris1994/Gallery, a moving work by this provocative Toronto company. This triple Dora-Award-nominated show takes the physicality of dance into an installation of interactive play where two lovers move from the lull of their shared history to the immediacy of the present in a rumination of longing, desire and our reconstructed pasts.

Compagnie Käfig (France/Brazil)
May 2-5, 2012

Hip hop prodigy Mourad Merzouki brings France and Brazil together to create poetic urban dance with exuberant and explosive power. Agwa takes place between tight corridors of little cups of water. Correria is a stylized endurance piece that lunges into a whirlwind of the frenzied modern world.



THE SHIPMENT (United States)
May 9-12, 2012

Young Jean Lee dissects what it means to be black in America in this hilarious and shocking play. Brazenly theatrical and transcendentally lyrical, THE SHIPMENT moves from the urban dreams of would-be rappers to the opulence of cocktail parties.
