About Life Under My Skin

The World Premiere of Life Under My Skin is planned for March 12 to 15, 2020 at the Dancemakers Centre in Toronto.

Life Under My Skin is envisioned as a collaborative, interdisciplinary and cross cultural dance-theatre project lead by Newton Moraes Dance Theatre. It will explore our ever-evolving world in a way that combines different modalities to bring unity of expression. It explores, examines and investigates our similarities and our differences, our deepest emotions, feelings and thoughts using spoken language, sign language, contemporary dance, Brazilian dance, Gaga dance technique and improvisation.

Artistic Director, Newton Moraes is creating new choreography and a new set design and, more importantly, amalgamate the movement vocabulary of a diverse cast of artists from Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, France, Haiti and the Bahamas.

“The plan is to start locally and expand internationally by using online media to connect with other artists around the world. The goal is to enhance and elevate the way we usually connect directly when we are in the same place through touch, gesture, voice, language, movement, and intention. These days we all are less connected directly with each other and ourselves, but through our voice and actions in this piece we will try to show how we can learn from each other and explore greater fluidity and acceptance of our differences in sexuality, gender, feeling and emotions.”

Newton Moraes, NMDT Artistic Director & Choreographer
