A world premiere dance-opera created by co-directors Michael Greyeyes (Plains Cree) and Yvette Nolan (Algonquin) and librettist Spy Denommé-Welch (Anishnaabe), Bearing features music performed live by the National Youth Orchestra with some of Toronto’s best professional classical musicians, a custom-built choir, and mezzo soprano Marion Newman (Kwagiulth and Stó:lo). Music by JS Bach, Vivier, and a commissioned work by Dénommé-Welch and Catherine Magowan is combined with percussion and electronics while the performers communicate through dance, music, and spoken word. It’s an ambitious, multi-faceted piece from Signal Theatre featuring some of the most talented and exciting artists of our times.
