(Toronto) Cloud 9/7e Ciel is a new endeavor that promotes and incubates a new kind of future for seasoned Canadian dance artists. In partnership with the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, Cloud 9/7e Ciel presents its inaugural performance evening featuring two world premieres by acclaimed choreographer Susie Burpee and Tedd Robinson. These stunning works will be performed by Cloud 9/7e Ciel founders/co-artistic directors Sylvie Bouchard, Karen Kaeja and Claudia Moore with guest artists Michael Sean Marye and Ron Stewart on June 27-29, 2013 in the Young Centre's Tank House Theatre.

Tedd Robinson, one of Canada's most esteemed dance smiths, has created a thirty-minute ensemble work for Cloud 9/7e Ciel to the music of Chopin featuring all five dancers. Sylvie Bouchard, Karen Kaeja and Claudia Moore will also perform a twenty-minute trio choreographed for them by Susie Burpee.

These commissions are rife with the complexities of human relationship. They encompass both the humour and the darkness of life in compelling physical language. The senior performers of Cloud 9/7e Ciel - brave, bold and exquisite - bring years of experience and artistry to their uplifting and courageous performances in the intimate setting of the Tank House Theatre.

Cloud 9/7e Ciel promotes accomplished Canadian dance artists who are passionate, award winning and highly driven. As the founders and co-artistic directors of this new collective, Sylvie Bouchard, Karen Kaeja and Claudia Moore have joined forces to bridge a void in the Canadian dance scene - the creation of a senior dance ensemble. Throughout their long and distinguished careers, they have founded MOonhORsE Dance Theatre, Older and Reckless, CORPUS, Dusk Dances, Kaeja d'Dance, and Festival of Interactive Physics. With Cloud 9, they commission brilliant choreographers for dancers over 45 years old, to perform masterful dance works on the world stage.
