Event Details

The Dancemakers’ 2012 Spring Home Season features a new work by Artistic Director and resident choreographer Michael Trent. 

The Adaptation Project - Trent’s new work for Dancemakers premiering April 18, 2012 – re-imagines a dance from the Company’s 100-plus repertoire, a body of work amassed over its 38-year history and created by noted Canadian and international artists. Wanting something other than a traditional remount, Trent will create a new dance piece in response to choreographer Mitchell Rose’s 1974 Following Station Identification, a ‘satirical dance on middle-American values’ set to music by Luciano Berio and Lukas Foss.

Choreography by Michael Trent
Created with and performed by Robert Abubo, Amanda Acorn, Kate Holden, Benjamin Kamino and Simon Renaud

Composer: Christopher Willes
Musician: Thom Gill
Lighting Designer: Kimberly Purtell
Costume Designer: 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.
