Momentum Dance Toronto presents our 2nd annual production:
Choreographic ADAPTATIONS celebrating CINEMA
When film technology did not include sound, composers and musicians were hired to create scores of music to play over the film in order to cover the noise of the projector. Over time, musicians learned the pertinence of musical timing in films, so to draw out the emotional connection from the audience at crucial moments. Dancers know too well the power that music draws and in some ways, dance and film are linked in our desire to share a story in a pocket of time. Our inspiration comes from sound; the beat of a drum, the harmony of strings, the passion behind a quickening tempo, the lyrics to notes that tell our story. From that our body moves to express this story, and to share with you how we feel about our world.
Momentum Dance Toronto takes you on that journey in our very own production of sight, sound and motion. We share with you music from movies over time that have inspired us to express our art the way an actor would on film. We seek to make you laugh, to dream, to cry and to connect, in some way to the human condition. Most importantly, we seek to entertain.
