This Is a Costume Drama

This Is a Costume Drama - Brodie with a pipe

Produced with Harbourfront Centre’s World Stage

April 29–May 2, 2015

What do we reveal by dressing up? Returning to World Stage following our 2012 triple Dora-nominated Paris1994/Gallery, we confirm our position as an internationally active platform for dance-powered works that blur the edges of the performance disciplines.

Our ambitious new production binds together a dizzying array of historical, pop, scientific and religious iconography, characters and situations. It forms a knot of influences and references that refuses to be untied. Elaborating artistic director DA Hoskins’ work as a sculptor who uses the material of dance, This Is a Costume Drama reveals how we transform, how we put on masks and how we celebrate – all as it turns the theatre into a landscape built for graphic spectacle. It’s a sexy, quirkily adult game of adornment, where the transformation of the exterior exposes a flash of inner life.

New Year, new tour and we couldn’t do it without you

The Land of Fuck (a fable)

Happy New Year!

This has been a very exciting year for The Dietrich Group and we hope you have had a great one too! TDG is preparing for a very exciting 2014, with the tour of The Land of Fuck (a fable) starting the fun with performances in Toronto at The Citadel Theatre (April 9-11) and continuing to Montréal to be part of Danse Danse (April 15-19), one of Canada’s most celebrated dance series, at Place des Arts.

The Dietrich Group has launched a fundraising campaign for The Land of Fuck (a fable). Your generous support will go towards key project investments: performer & production staff compensation, rehearsal studio rentals, plus set and prop components. The Dietrich Group has already raised 78 per cent of the necessary budget. With this final, critical contribution from you, our generous supporters, it will enable The Dietrich Group to be able to present this bold artistic statement from one of Canada’s most standout choreographers, with an exceptional cast and crew for presentations in both Toronto and Montréal. This endeavour marks a new era for The Dietrich Group as we gain notoriety and seek opportunities to reach new audience and performance opportunities.

Please follow this link to our Indiegogo campaign, where you will find some pretty great incentives from postcards from Montréal to a dinner with The Dietrich Group at Artistic Director D.A. Hoskins’ home. There are lots of ways to support our fundraising, from a $5 donation and up, to sharing our fundraising campaign on your social media.

We look forward to seeing you in April and we thank you for your continuing support of The Dietrich Group.

Sincerely,

D.A. Hoskins, Artistic Director, and Oz Weaver, Executive Director
