*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

Driven by the vision of Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer Michael Trent, Dancemakers draws on the diverse talents and individual strengths of its artists to create contemporary dance works that provoke and entertain. At its core is the desire to promote new works rooted in contemporary aesthetics, cross-disciplinary dialogues and collaborative engagement.
This season marks Dancemakers 40 years of leading the field of contempoary dance dance in Canada, having established its current home in the Distillery Historic District in 2002 with a state-of-the-art 96-seat performance venue and a second rehearsal studio named after the late composer Michael J. Baker.
Along with making bold contemporary dances, Dancemakers promotes and encourages contemporary practice through ongoing professional development events and activities including daily dance classes, master classes, residencies and choreographic labs; which showcases national and international artists.
