Toronto (September 5, 2018) - Older & Reckless, MOonhORsE Dance Theatre's acclaimed series curated by Artistic Director Claudia Moore, celebrates age on stage with the 41st edition, featuring international dance force Kitt Johnson from Denmark. Dynamic Canadian dance artists Susie Burpee with Linnea Swan, Toronto's beloved Pia Bouman, award-winning choreographer/director Marie-Josée Chartier and Kathak maverick Deepti Gupta (Ottawa), complete the program that runs Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10 for three shows only at Harbourfront Centre Theatre.
Older & Reckless #41 also features an exciting Community Performance Project with an excerpt from MoW! On the Move, featuring 30 performers led by Montreal-based choreographer Roger Sinha.
Distinguished Canadian artists including famed singer Tabby Johnson host each performance. Every Older & Reckless performance begins with an audience warm-up and ends with a party where audience and artists have a chance to meet and discuss the work - enlightening for all!
New this year is a Circle Dance Talk before the show on Saturday, November 10 at 6pm. The topic is how dance helps keep us happy and benefits our overall health as we age, a finding now validated by several studies. Guest speakers and movement leaders include Dr. Pia Kontos (Senior Scientist at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute-University Health Network), Joysanne Sidimus (founder Dancer Transition Resource Centre), Martha Randall (black belt Nia instructor), Michelle Silagy (DanceAbilities instructor) and Carol Anderson (Gyrotonics instructor). The Circle Dance Talk is free with purchase of a ticket to Older & Reckless that evening.
