About the Show

Choreographed by Michael Caldwell

The world premiere of Factory is the anticipated first full-length work from Michael Caldwell, the Toronto-based choreographer and two-time Dora Award-winner turning heads in the Canadian dance scene. Together with Gemini award-winning composer Phil Strong, Factory will construct a dizzying sonic universe exposing society’s compulsion for power and corruption.

Through visceral, impulse-driven movement, the five dancers: Lori Duncan, Louis Laberge-Côté, Benjamin Landsberg, Kaitlin Standeven  and Heidi Strauss will offer a mesmerizing dioramic view of the chaos and deception within the here and now as a moment in time.
