We are happy to announce that Kinetic Elements is going to be a part of Series 8:08 this Saturday night! It is a Choreographic Performance Workshop where YOU get to be right in the middle of the creative process. Choreographers and companies come to this Series to show a work in progress, then you as the audience get to write down your comments; good or bad and hand them in. Then the choreographer gets all the comments at the end – So you get to be a part of the process as well!

How cool is that? Plus, you will be the first among a few to see the latest works by some great choreographers and dancers. Amazing!

Where: Scotiabank Studio Theatre
Pia Bouman School
6 Noble St, Toronto

When: Saturday September 25
8:08pm

Cost: $10

You can also visit www.series808.ca for more information on the shows, they also have classes and much more. Hope to see you there this Saturday!

The Choreographers

Right before the show!

This piece is one of my favourites and I am so lucky to have worked with Kinetic Elements’ dancer Ashima Suri on this piece. She brought her love of dance to us and it shows. This number gave me chills. Here is the video from the night!

Great work dancers!
