I can hear your heart beating in my ear
An empty white space; bright light. We could be in a museum gallery, but the works on display here are teenagers and adults wearing headsets. Little by little they reveal themselves, through their tentative presence, through their disturbing or amusing statements. They talk about everything: themselves, their family, their future; they play Truth or Consequences, they exchange pieces of clothing. What’s real in all of this? The performance is different in every host city, depending on the local young people cast in the show. A meaningful and vibrant portrait of life captured in the moment.
Stay tuned for the casting call! Impatience has played in Montreal, Mons (Belgium) and Toronto, and is en route to Ottawa-Gatineau.
This electrifying dance showcase includes swing, jazz, 1950s bop, ‘Dirty Dancing,’ the waltz, cha-cha, tango, and much more. Incomparable performers, spectacular choreography and the NAC Orchestra: you’ll be dancing in the aisles!

Childhood is the diamond of our lives
Hooray, the Italians are coming! At long last we get to see this little gem of a dance theatre piece that has been presented everywhere (else) on the planet!
Two dazzling performers move easily between the roles of parents and children as they relate Nina and Tommaso’s wild adventure. The inseparable siblings share a bond that’s stronger than anything: stronger than beatings, stronger than fire, stronger even than distance. Childhood is a treasure, and our zany heroes have created a bubble, a crazy imaginary world. They invite us in, and for the next hour or so, we’re all 10 years old!
