*loveloss* - a new work for Dancemakers by Artistic Director Michael Trent.
The bodily effects of (as the title would suggest) loss and love. So often together and so common as to affect us all. Visible and exposed from all sides, barely able to hide a thing, the bodies imagine and sense.
Emotionally curious and curious about emotion, returning company members Robert Abubo, Amanda Acorn and Simon Renaud are joined by newcomers Ellen Furey and Simon Portigal in a show that starts from a different place for Trent and co.
Vulnerable, shy, bold and daring - they invite us to join them on the trip.
The company is joined by the team behind The Adaptation Project including composer Christopher Willes, dramaturge Jacob Zimmer, lighting designer Kim Purtell and costume design Vanessa Fischer

Dancemakers Centre for Creation
9 Trinity Street
ON M5A 3C4
We are fully embracing Dancemakers as a centre – a centre for creating, a centre for artists, a centre for everyone.
The curatorial practice we propose is about people, about making space for multiple perspectives and systems of thought. Our vision for Dancemakers as a centre means that we must undertake this act of centring towards people as individuals.
As a centre for everyone we must pose clear, simple questions which allow for a broad range of answers: “what is dance?”, “why are you dancing?”, and “how do you define what you do right now?” We feel asking these questions are essential within the current Canadian dance ecology, and they will form the basis for everything we do and all those we work with.
