Dancers Apolonia Velasquez and Ofilio Sinbadinho, Co-Artistic Directors of Gadfly. Gadfly serves as a platform for urban dance artists and street dance culture in general and here in Canada. Talks about their production of Arkemy. Showing December 5-7, 8pm, The Citadel,  304 Parliament Street. A show about a deadly Virus that could terminate Sheepwalking, Whynism and Ballnesia. 
Director Jacqui Thomas, Artistic Director of Theatre Gargantua, and Actor Michele Pollack on their presentation of the world premiere of The Sacrifice Zone, marking the Canadian debut of Australian playwright Suzie Miller of The Uncertainty Principle. Representing the culmination of the company’s tenth cycle of work, The Sacrifice Zone is a dynamic investigation into the harrowing pursuit of justice after a fatal explosion in an industry town dedicated to resource extraction. The Sacrifice Zone opens November 14 and runs to November 30 (previews November 13) at the Factory Studio Theatre, 125 Bathurst Street.  Saturday matinees at 2pm Pay-What-You-Can. The Sacrifice Zone uses a compelling mix of Theatre Gargantua’s trademark, highly physical, imagistic style coupled with technology and music to explore the human cost incurred in a complicated bid for justice.
Dancers Matthew Barnes and Katherine Semchuk talk about the School of Toronto Dance Theatre presentation of IMPULSE 2013, an ambitious main-stage performance of ensemble works, showcasing dancers from all three years of the Professional Training Program.
