Awakening: The Story  Of A Dancer Thursday June 17th and Friday June 18th 2010

Awakening: The Story Of a Dancer

For Immediate Release ( January)
Toronto - ON , The journey of no two dancers is the same and therein lies the graphic, uncompromising story of one such dancer. Awakening: The Story of a Dancer is an urban musical dance theatre production based on the transformational journey of a dancer. A dubious love affair is told in the language of dance highlighting the importance of sisterhood, culture and community. A little girl dreams to be  a successful dancer and learns that the hardest journey is not upward, but inward. Artistic maturity eventually comes arousing a spirit of energy, legacy, and connection. Awakening premiers on Thursday June 17th 2010 at 8pm and runs until Friday June 18th 2010 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts 5040 Yonge Street Toronto Ont. M2N 6R8.

About the show:
Awakening is reflective of human angst, dedication and ultimate triumph. Born out of a true story, Awakening is a story of perseverance and the power to aspire to one's dreams. Live musical and spoken word accompaniment intricately weaves a together a diverse world of dance styles rooted in an Afrocentric aesthetic. The story makes a statement about retrieving the personal strength in our fears and innate power of music and dance to fortify our weaknesses.
