Body Brake X
Hosted by Theatre Passe Muraille
16 Ryerson Avenue, Toronto, ON, Canada
More dancing, more awesome – 10th anniversary edition! Part cabaret, part performance installation, part immersive environment, completely fun!
Combining the energy of a rock concert in an evening of dance, Body Brake freely and irreverently mixes popular, classical and contemporary styles into a large performance party that holds the dancing body in a curious and politically charged spectrum.
Where else can you see Aerial, Contemporary, Ballet, Post Contemporary, Drag, Burlesque, Tap, African, Indian, Street Dance, Bondage Performance Art, Parkour, Music and more all in one evening?
For this special 10th anniversary edition of Body Brake, we are all in a state of transition as Anandam passes the sequined torch to a new curatorial team – the drag aliens from the future, xLq POP ART performance, and everyone’s favourite resident pop superstars, Half Second Echo (Miles Gosse, Denise Solleza, Justine Comfort, Maddie Bautista, Jordan Campbell).
BODY BRAKE X will take over the entire Theatre Passe Muraille Mainspace and balcony, with audience areas on the ground level and in the balcony. The audience is also constantly in transition, as performances pop up in different locations throughout the evening. The TPM bar will be open upstairs!
Erin Ball’s performance Extended Body will be audio described by Kat Germain. Venue is wheelchair accessible. The bar is upstairs. Announcements are mic’ed and amplified. More accessibility information is available on the Theatre Passe Muraille website.
