More Than Dance, We Are A Movement

Harbourfront Centre, in partnership with Digidance, presents the Canadian premiere of More Than Dance, We Are A Movement, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of contemporary Indigenous innovators, Red Sky Performance.The film will stream in Canada April 14-20, 2021.

Recognized nationally and internationally as one of Canada’s most prolific and acclaimed creators of contemporary Indigenous works, Red Sky Performance is lauded for its impactful, interdisciplinary works informed by an Indigenous worldview. Red Sky Performance moves beyond dance to elicit meaningful change surrounding the narrative of Indigenous arts and culture in Canada and beyond.

Including interviews with Executive and Artistic Director Sandra Laronde (she is a powerhouse of creativity) and her company of collaborators, the film offers an intimate and insightful look into the company’s singular artistic vision—creating contemporary works rooted in Indigenous storytelling traditions.

The film premiere features excerpts from two award-winning creations: Trace, a highly kinetic dance work inspired by Anishinaabe sky and star stories, and Miigis, which breathes life into origin stories of travel from the Atlantic Coast to the Great Lakes.

Thursday, April 15 at 8pm EST, Classic Stage Company will present Tell The Story: Celebrating Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Assassins

This FREE virtual event will bring together a star-studded array of theater legends for performances and conversations exploring the legacy of this timely American musical. Participants include the entire cast of our upcoming production, friends and alumni of CSC, as well as cast and creative team members from the 1990 Off-Broadway premiere and 2004 Broadway revival. And, perhaps most exciting of all, the event will culminate in a special discussion between Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman. This exciting new project is inspired by our forthcoming production of Assassins, which was originally scheduled to open April 2020. Now it’s been one year since CSC joined theaters across the country and closed our doors due to the global pandemic, and while we are still focused on reopening, CSC is thrilled to present Tell The Story, a benefit designed to raise funds and help CSC reopen as soon as we can.   Read on for the complete lineup of special guests and find out how you can reserve your free ticket to join us.
