Description

Citadel + Compagnie (C+C) launches its 2017/18 Bright Nights season with the world premiere of Factory, a stirring contemporary dance work examining the riotous disruption of a hyper-connected society, September 20 – 23, 2017 at The Citadel. Co-produced by MLC Dance and pounds per square inch performance (lbs/sq"), Factory is the first full-length project from Toronto choreographer and two-time Dora Award-winner Michael Caldwell. Created in collaboration with Gemini award-winning composer Phil Strong, this thought-provoking work will assemble five of Canada’s premier dancers who will thrust audiences into a surreal, post-traumatic world of chaos, power, and deception. In Factory, choreographer Michael Caldwell and composer Phil Strong construct a dizzying sonic universe – a place of intense social connectivity lacking real human interaction. Toronto’s esteemed dancers Lori Duncan, Louis Laberge-Côté, Benjamin Landsberg, Kaitlin Standeven, and Heidi Strauss converge and come apart through idiosyncratic, impulse-driven movements, dismantling form and decoding layers of meaning with distinct interpretation. A timely meditation on the political and societal realities of the attainment and abuse of power, Factory offers a mesmerizing dioramic view of the here and now, as a moment in time.
