<A HREF="http://www.tdt.org" TARGET=_blank>Toronto Dance Theatre</A> was founded by dancer/choreographers Peter Randazzo, Patricia Beatty and (Master Teacher) David Earle (who now runs <A HREF="http://www.dtde.ca" TARGET=_blank>Dance Theatre David Earle</A>) in 1968. TDT is highly regarded as a contemporary rep. company in Canada. The School of Toronto Dance Theatre is one of the premier training centres for modern dance in Canada.<P>A lot of changes have taken place since Christopher House (who has been with the company since 1980) took over as A.D. in 1994. There were rumblings of discord and many of the dancers left the company at that time. House has since assembled a new contingent of twelve members. <P> Image <BR><font size=1><B>"Vena Cava" Choreographer: Christopher House <BR>Dancers: Sasha Ivanochka, Naoko Murakoshi, Sonya Stefan, Laura West</B></font> <P>From the Gazette, 02/24/01:<BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Nest has a life of its own</B><BR>Drawing on theatre and spoken word, Christopher House turns a creative corner <P>. . .after 20 years and 60 choreographies, [Christopher House] came to an impasse in his dance making.

Paula Citron - Globe & Mail, 11.29.01:<BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>House serves up a feast for the eyes</B><P>Choreographer Christopher House, artistic director of Toronto Dance Theatre, is one of the intellectuals of Canadian dance. He also has a wickedly droll sense of humour, as well as a fine eye for movement patterns, and all these qualities are apparent in his latest full-length work, Persephone's Lunch.<P>Choreographically, House's movement mirrors the easygoing nature of the score, at once loose and lanky, sensual and sexy, with subdued energy held in check within a cocoon of reflection. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>To read more search <B>Paula Citron</B> on the <A HREF="http://www.globeandmail.com" TARGET=_blank>Globe & Mail's</A> 7 Day Search

Michael Crabb - National Post, 11.29.01: <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Christopher House embarks on a long voyage home</B><P>Apart from the splendid dancing -- TDT is a crackerjack troupe these days -- those who have followed House along his new path will find much to engage their curiosity in Persephone's Lunch. As House himself tells us in an early voice-over, his new piece is "floating on a text." It's not so much about the voyage of Odysseus as about the voyage House is currently making, the way he is liberating his own imagination and using intuition as much as intellection as a creative tool.<P>The result is neither neat nor easy.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR><B>more...</B><BR>
