‘Balancing on the Edge’ (BOTE)

New circus and new music collide in boundary pushing, radical circus performances featuring special guest, DJ P-Love and a cast of 40 local artists!

‘Balancing on the Edge’ (BOTE) is a collaborative production between Thin Edge New Music Collective and A Girl in the Sky Productions presented in association with Harbourfront Centre, which will explore via a deeply integrated relationship between contemporary music and contemporary circus arts, the myriad of ways in which modern humanity is precariously balanced on the edge of survival and evolution. BOTE will be presented at the Harbourfront Centre Theatre in Toronto on Nov 18 at 8pm and Nov 19th 2pm + 8pm 2016 as part of Harbourfront's NextSteps series.

Our production will feature the premiere of six collaborative works interpreting what it means to be ‘balancing on the edge’ through innovative new music and new circus performances. Featured circus artists include Rebecca Devi Leonard, Natasha Danchenko, Brandy Leary, Holly Treddenick, Angola Murdoch-Ladder, Diana Lopez, Rebecca Carney, Emily Hughes, Emmanuel Cyr, and Louis Barbier who will showcase a wide range of circus disciplines ranging from Aerial Rock, Fire and ladder to invented apparatus and object manipulation. Our musical programme includes works by John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, David Lang, and Montreal-based Nicole Lizée, with world premieres by California-based Scott Rubin and Toronto’s own Nick Storring. BOTE will feature lighting design by Joe Pagnan with live projections by Evan DeRushie and video by Jason J Brown. Balancing on the Edge aims to investigate what it means to be pushed to the limit from a wide range of perspectives through a fascinating synthesis of theatre, dance, multi-media, new music and new circus.
