TILT sound+motion is devoted to the exploration of current themes and cutting edge choreographies by some of Canada’s most important crafters of dance. Canada’s leading youth dance company, Canadian Children’s Dance Theatre, created TILT to provide experience for the some of the best young professional dancers in the country. While its core aim is to engage and entertain older teens and young adults, a TILT Sound & Motion show is enjoyable for all ages. TILT was launched on the National Arts Centre Stage to critical acclaim at the 2002 Canada Dance Festival.
The four works on the program are as follows:
Montreal choreographer Marie-Julie Asselin’s L’ove explores the uneasiness of human existence as it follows three characters through different emotional scenes.
In v-hold, collaborators Heidi Strauss and Jeremy Mimnagh fuse video, dance and sound into a multifaceted exploration of different interpretations of the term ‘vertical hold’. Futuristic and stylistically refined, this visual montage is a synergistic blend of technology and human interaction.
Mystical, visceral and ecstatic describe Peter Chin’s ritual with frogs, butterflies and others featuring movement inspired by the Gambuh ritual theatre of Bali (and the lives of frogs, butterflies and other creatures). The quintet weaves an energetic web in a dance that explores the fierce unison of the herd as well as sinuous, intertwining individualism, creating a complex counterpoint.
Deborah Dunn’s piece Elegant Heathens is a choreographed set of questions revolving around western dualities, including the mind/body, the past/present and the strained relationship between pleasure and progress. The five characters are stylish subversives, using their bodies as fearless vehicles through which they ask questions about themselves, each other and the world.
TILT performance schedule for grades 7-12.
