NOW Magazine - - TIP SHEET -

Di­rec­tor ex­traor­di­naire Robert Lepage is ev­ery­where these days. He just re­mounted his tri­umphant Nightin­gale And Other Short Fables at the Cana­dian Opera Com­pany; his Co­ri­olanus is the most-an­tic­i­pated show at Strat­ford this sum­mer. And this week he makes his Na­tional Bal­let of Canada de­but di­rect­ing a new mul­ti­me­dia bal­let chore­ographed by the Na­tional’s chore­o­graphic as­so­ciate (and prin­ci­pal dancer) Guil­laume Côté. In­spired by the life and work of pi­o­neer­ing Cana­dian film­maker Nor­man McLaren, Frame By Frame will fea­ture dance, the­atre and film. Con­sid­er­ing that one of McLaren’s most fa­mous shorts, the dream-like Pas De Deux, fea­tured a pair of dancers in ac­tion, it all seems like a per­fect fit, es­pe­cially for Lepage and his vis­ually in­ven­tive Ex Machina com­pany. Four Sea­sons Cen­tre (145 Queen West). From $39. 416-345-9595.
