SUN RA ARKESTRA WITH COLEMAN LEMIEUX DANCE COMPANY IN TORONTO 2012 10 20


from the Saturn newsgroup

Direct from its triumphant European tour, the Sun Ra Arkestra under the direction of Marshall Allen will continue its 2012 World Tour in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on Saturday, October 20, 2012 with a collaboration featuring the Coleman Lemieux Dance Company. This "Space is the Place" spectacular will be held at the Regent Part Arts and Cultural Centre, 585 Dundas Street East, Toronto (between Sumach and Sackville Streets) between 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm on October 20, 2012.

Bill Coleman’s "Space is the Place" (featuring "Hymn to the Universe") is a free theatrical performance, site-specific event and gathering rolled into one that will bring alive the Regent Park Arts & Cultural Centre with music and dance, and connect the newly opened Centre to its surrounding community.

The Sun Ra Arkestra under the direction of Marshall Allen will be joined by students from the Regent Park School of Music and the artists of Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie. This event will consist of a ‘lobby sound symphony,’ and a special adaptation of Bill Coleman’s celebrated performance Hymn to the Universe, followed by a community gathering.

Choreographer Bill Coleman, best known for his ground-breaking site-specific works, will be joined by eight dancers, including Carol Prieur, voted Female Dancer of the Year by Europe's respected Tanz Magazine, and Andrea Weber of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. Visual design and costumes are by award-winning M├ętis visual artist Edward Poitras and Toronto fashion icons Hoax Couture designers Jim Searle and Chris Tyrell.
