The Gravity PlayersAN ECLECTIC EVENING OF DANCE FEATURING A VARIETY OF CHOREOGRAPHIC VOICES
November 13-21 2015 - Theatre Junction Grand
Jazz loves gravity. It doesn’t try to pull away from it; it embraces it, and gets lower. It might lift out of it, leap, kiss the clouds, but it’s happiest when it’s low, close to the ground.This performance will feature some brave new works.The Gravity Players features the DJD Company performing a variety of pieces created by Sarisa F. de Toledo, Deanne Walsh, and Kimberley Cooper, as well as Toronto choreographers Hanna Kiel and Gadfly who will add some contemporary and urban dance to the mix.
