BRINGING THE CHAOS
Electrifying Toronto choreographer Robert Binet has been turning heads with his bold and risky works often set in alternative venues, from subway stations to country barns. This month, his Children of
Chaos is part of Fall Dance North, which has 10 companies presenting works over three nights from Oct. 4 to 6 at the Sony Centre.
“We came up with the idea of inviting together a group of Canadian dancers having brilliant careers abroad,” says Binet from England where he is working with the National Ballet of Canada on another production. “They will all be dancing together, and most have never performed in Canada since they were children.”
Pianist John Camille Serra will be live onstage with the dancers. “Some of it is very set and rigid, and some of it is very free form, and he’ll be improvising a lot, so there’s a lot of flux,” says Binet. “We won’t really know what it is until it’s happening, and that’s exciting.”
