WILD/WALLED – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release

From press release

WILD/WALLED is a highly physical, honest and compelling contemporary dance performance utilizing the performance talents of the members of the vibrant and tenacious collective Half Second Echo and special guests. Featuring the work of notable Choreographers who have wowed Fringe audiences and critics in years past, this rendition investigates timely concepts including, the assemblage and tearing down of walls in society and relationships, and the natural juxtapositions to the wildness, unpredictability and untamed nature of being human. The choreographers, Alison Daley, Miles Gosse, and Tracey Norman, are inspired by each other’s work and creating works that are meant to live together as separate events connected in surprising and curious ways.

All 3 producers have had hit Fringe shows which were well attended, well reviewed in major publications, and went on to be curated and produced by other organizations. Elly’s Emotions (Daley – Toronto Fringe 2014) was picked up by Solar Stage Children’s Theatre following the Fringe run and nominated for Best Production and Best Direction in the Young Audiences category at the Dora Awards 2015. no permanent answers (Norman – Toronto Fringe 2013) was named Outstanding Ensemble (NOW Magazine), and Norman’s work went on to be a curated by DanceWorks Mainstage/Next Steps and performed at Harbourfront Centre Theatre in 2015.

Come tear down the walls this summer and embrace your inner wildness.
