Events Description

Toronto Premiere of Choreographer Mélanie Demer’s Animal Triste Explores the Dark Corners of the Human Condition

Called a “pivotal work” by Le Devoir, Mayday’s Animal Triste is a study of nature and posture of humanity – poor and perishable one day, free and triumphant the next. Canadian choreographer Mélanie Demers brings her visceral and highly charged choreography to Toronto for the first time and use the Harbourfront Centre Theatre to expose the dark corners of the human condition. While humans like to think they’re the center of the universe, nothing could be farther from the truth. In the great march of time, they are simply just sad little animals. Animal Triste will ask you to investigate how our instincts actually drive our relationships, despite our blinding delusions.

Harbourfront Centre, renowned for presenting contemporary, cutting edge performances, has nurtured local, national and international dance on its stages for years. Exploring current artistic and societal themes, the curated dance series, TORQUE, features five new premiere and provocative performances created by visionary female choreographers from around the world.
