Stereophonic is a mixed bill of five multi-dimensional contemporary dance works choreographed by legendary dance artist Peggy Baker, including three world premieres, and re-interpretations by members of her ensemble of two of her landmark solos. This stunning evening features acclaimed pianist John Kameel Farah and a company of exquisite dancers. Scroll below for a first look at the pieces!
The centrepiece of Stereophonic is the world premiere of Split Screen Stereophonic wherein Baker choreographs duets that explore intimate relationships, investigating the chemistry of the personal and private worlds between men and women, with two couples simultaneously on a stage cut into right and left halves.
Also premiering are Aleatoric Solo No. 1 (for dancer Sahara Morimoto) and a new solo, choreographed and performed by Baker herself, epilogue.
Peggy Baker Dance Projects presents Stereophonic, Wednesday, February 27 - Sunday, March 3, 2013, at the Betty Oliphant Theatre, 404 Jarvis Street, Toronto. Performances run Wed-Sat at 8:30pm, Sun matinee at 4pm.
