L’Allegro Movement Project
June 19, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
In the months leading up to the Luminato Festival, dancers and teachers from Mark Morris Dance Group‘s ground-breaking Dance for PD® program, will collaborate with the Toronto Dancing With Parkinson‘s group and local elementary school students from Nelson Mandela Park PS and Winchester Junior PS to create L’Allegro Movement Project.
Using thematic and structural elements from L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato as the basis for the movement creation, participants will explore the choreographic, poetic, and musical elements of Mark Morris’s signature work. Through this collaborative, inter-generational initiative, young students and participants with Parkinson’s disease will be empowered to explore and celebrate the expressive possibilities of movement through dance and music.
The performance of L’Allegro Movement Project will feature the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir and soloists.
Conducted by Jane Glover.
