Toronto Dance Theatre: GLASS FIELDS  

Celebrating its fiftieth anniversary year, TDT returns to the Fleck Dance Theatre with Glass Fields, an exhilarating program of premieres created in response to Christopher House's masterwork Glass Houses (1983). Set to Ann Southam's exuberant piano music, Glass Houses was described by The New York Times as "downright startling - spewing forth a kinetic brilliance in the form of energy and continuum". TDT's fiftieth anniversary program includes premieres that refract the original work's essence through a fascinating variety of contemporary lenses, ending with a performance of Glass Houses. The premieres include works by Amanda Acorn, Jasmyn Fyffe, Hanna Kiel, Tedd Robinson and Christopher House.
