Event description

Description

Echo Chamber Toronto is an exciting new performance series that brings musicians and dancers together on stage for stunning collaborations. ECT merges the intimate dynamic of chamber music with the physical beauty of contemporary ballet.

Echo Chamber Toronto projects feature new, integrative choreographed works by some of Canada's leading choreographers, delivering the unique opportunity to connect with music not just through listening, but also through movement, interaction, and space. These works are performed by Toronto's finest dancers and musicians, featuring artists from the National Ballet of Canada, Canadian Opera Company, and Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

"Transfigured Night" takes us on a journey from the earth to the cosmos as we explore subjects of love and spirituality and how these two powerful forces can bring us together and keep us apart.
