Time Out says

Three choreographers (Emily Molnar, Sharon Eyal and Crystal Pite) make up the body and soul of this young Canadian company directed by Molnar, and it's among the newest and most innovative to come out of the world of international dance. You can see three pieces today, including Emily Molnar's choreography for 'To This Day', danced to the sound of blues and Jimi Hendrix's guitar riffs. Also on the programme is a piece by Sharon Eyal, an artist born in Jerusalem who danced with the Batsheva Dance Company. Eyal is the co-author, along with fellow Israeli Gai Behar, of 'Bedroom Folk', featuring electronic music by Ori Lichtick for 18 performers created by the Nederland Dance Theatre. It's a piece as hypnotic and wild as it is daring and full of energy that starts with solos with almost humorous elements and ends in spectacular group moments. And the piece by Crystal Pite, 'Solo Echo', is the finale of the programme. It's based on two sonatas by Brahms and tells the story of a journey between adolescence and maturity.
