The celebrated international dance series Torque is returning to Harbourfront Centre with six premiere performances from some of the world’s most dynamic choreographers.

The series will feature the world premiere on May 15, 2020, of Sky Dancers: Bridges from the A’nó:wara Dance Theatre of Kahnawake and Montreal. Running at the Fleck Dance Theatre, it tells the story of the 1907 Quebec bridge disaster that killed 33 ironworkers from the Mohawk community of Kahnawake.

The Torque series kicks off on Oct. 18 at the Fleck Dance Theatre with the Canadian premiere of Norway's Simulacrum, where the winter guest company mixes Japanese dance-drama with flamenco and contemporary dance theatre.
