Initiated to create and foster a mutually enriching community of artists, the NAC Associate Dance Artists program bears witness to the enormous wealth of dance talent in Canada. These remarkable evenings feature Marie Chouinard’s legendary solo Étude no 1 danced in steel-toed shoes; Crystal Pite’s A Picture of You Falling performed by the astonishing duo of Anne Plamondon and Peter Chu; and Christopher House’s dynamic Echo, in which ten dancers from Toronto Dance Theatre inhabit a world of beautiful creatures, dark angels and lost souls.
