About the Show

Citadel Dance Mix 2018
Featuring works by Allison Cummings, Tori Mehaffey, and DA Hoskins

This inaugural seasonal triple bill features some of Toronto’s most daring and exciting dance creators, including C+C’s commission of Tori Mehaffey’s quartet.

As she  shall  obtain  such  command  of  her  mass  vein  passageways

Imagine a woman with the ability to power her heart’s blood flow out, and in turn retrieve all her body’s blood back to the heart chambers. This dance is an unraveling and despairing duet between a dancer and the desire to control.


LADY BABY follows a woman – her myth, her sexuality, her stories – into the very clutches of any one notion of ‘identity’. Is her identity hers alone? Or is she simply an idea the audience has formed of her through images that resonate with iconic, yet unsettling familiarity? 


Personal events we have distanced ourselves from for fear of the responses embedded within them.
