DANCE o FILM o MUSIC: THE NEAT STRANGE MUSIC OF AHMED HASSAN: OCTOBER 21-22, 8pm
Betty Oliphant Theatre, 400 Jarvis St, Toronto
Highlighting this year’s Abilities Festival is a celebration of the singular artistic vision of this influential Canadian composer and musician curated by award-winning contemporary dancer Peggy Baker, Hassan’s wife and longtime collaborator.
Neat Strange Music features excerpts from the work of some of Canada’s leading dancers and choreographers – Robert Desrosiers, Serge Bennathan, Peter Bingham and Peggy Baker herself, along with a rare reunion concert by ethno-music heroes, Mother Tongue. Beginning in 1981, Hassan made an important and thoroughly original contribution to the Canadian dance scene for two decades through compositions and live performances of music for a host of important choreographers.
