Life Under My Skin – Premiere

Thursday, November 24, 2022 to November 26, 2022 at 8:00 pm

Celebrating NMDT’s 25th Anniversary, Life Under My Skin will premiere in Toronto, at Fleck Dance Theatre November 24th to 26th 2022.

Life Under My Skin is an exploration of how artists deal with doubt, depression, worth and everything related how our body, image and inside of ourselves. Choreographed by renowned creator Newton Moraes, the piece examines what artists do to survive—taking on jobs and tasks that are far from the glamour of being artist, while posing the questions: Why do we do this? Why do we create art? Why do we dance? Created in collaboration with lighting designer Sharon DiGenova, composer Edgardo Moreno, and the performers, it is an imagistic tapestry of human expression, and bring together Toronto’s most talented dance artists.
