Dances with Trane (Production Premiere March 2020).
Dances for Trane is inspired by the ideas of American musician John Coltrane.
Whether it is swing, bebop, blues, or any of the various sub-genres, jazz has a profound capability of allowing those that are open to it’s unique qualities to embrace and experience a creativity through freeing, propulsive, polyrhythmic movement. That’s the world we seek to create through Holla Jazz which is why Coltrane’s approaches and ideas to music are wildly exciting to examine through a dance perspective. How can we collectively create soulful experiences through his exciting music?”
The creation of this new production is supported by Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts, Council, and Toronto Arts Council.
