PORTRAIT

Book Now

Two performers play muse for each other and their choreographer, meeting and missing through the reflection of creative impulses. Together they negotiate nostalgia, narrative, and connection through choreography. Originally performed in 2009 at the former Theatre Centre, PORTRAIT marks a period in Toronto wherein dancetheatre was in question and crisis. Its revival offers an opportunity to celebrate these artists’ personal investment into an impossible form.
