tiger princess dance projects, In Search of the Holy Chop Suey and Zhong Xin
Thursday, November 24- Saturday, November 26, 2016 at 8pm
Harbourfront Centre Theatre
In what location, time, or space does identity reside? Choreographer Yvonne Ng offers two haunting new investigations. A solo, In Search of the Holy Chop Suey, mines movement influences from sources as varied as her mother and kungfu legend Bruce Lee. Then, in companion piece, Zhong Xin, Ng extends her research in memory and presence to include three of Toronto’s most compelling dancers – Mairéad Filgate, Luke Garwood, and Irvin Chow. After many months of creating in isolation from each other, the dancers unite in a curious assembly.
