Shannon Litzenberger Contemporary Dance, in partnership with Harbourfront Centre, presents the World Premiere of WORLD AFTER DARK, reclaiming the night - a metaphor for the sensual, the embodied and the feminine.
WORLD AFTER DARK is directed and choreographed by Shannon Litzenberger, featuring lead performances by renowned Canadian dance artists Louis Laberge-Coté and Linnea Swan and an outstanding ensemble of performers.
The production is presented at the Harbourfront Centre Theatre, March 6 to 9, 2019.
Inspired by Christopher Dewdney's Award-winning book Acquainted with the Night, WORLD AFTER DARK explores the relationship of the physical and metaphorical night. From the three stages of nightfall to the science of the cosmos; from the birth of nightlife to the empire of dreams; from the biology of nocturnal creatures to the mythology of the night sky, Dewdney's compelling poetic reveries and scientific explanations journey us on an epic voyage through the mysteries of night.
