Just in time for the cherry blossoms to open, DUO client Lucy Rupert‘s company Blue Ceiling dance premieres Animal Vegetable Mineral in the historic Forest School, the High Park Nature Centre’s new home on the grounds of High Park this weekend.
Animal Vegetable Mineral is an ensemble dance work in which the dancers’ bodies are ecosystems built on the sensory experiences of organisms: animal, vegetable and mineral. These embodied ecosystems interact and collide, highlighting the interdependence of all life on earth during a breakdown. The cast includes some of Toronto’s most compelling contemporary dancers.
Blue Ceiling and the HPNC hope to introduce new people to the High Park Nature Centre and new people to contemporary dance. Pre-show hikes with Nature Centre staff will illuminate the points of inspiration for Blue Ceiling’s new work.
“Rupert is a choreographer with an immense imagination. She is not afraid to make the audience work a little, which is a good thing.” Paula Citron, Globe and Mail
