New Music and New Circus Collide in:

Balancing on the Edge

~ in association with Harbourfront Theatre NextSTEPS

‘Balancing on the Edge’ is a collaborative production between Thin Edge New Music Collective and A Girl in the Sky Productions, which will explore via a deeply integrated relationship between contemporary music and contemporary circus arts, the myriad of ways in which modern humanity is precariously balanced on the edge of survival and evolution. BOTE will be presented in association with the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto in November 2016, and will feature curated partnerships between 9 different physical circus artists with either an innovative emerging composer as they create a new work for the project in tandem with the circus artist, or with a pre-composed piece of 21st or 20th century chamber music which will be performed live by TENMC musicians. Music by David Lang, John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, Nicole Lizee and featuring newly commissioned works by Nick Storring and Scott Rubin. Featuring guest turntablist - DJ P Love.
