DA Hoskins wins the Canadian Stage Award for Direction for The Dietrich Group’s presentation of PORTRAIT @ the SummerWorks Festival.
In August 2017, The Dietrich Group invites you to PORTRAIT at SummerWorks Festival. Witness exquisite artists Danielle Baskerville and Robert Kingsbury in DA Hoskins’ reconstruction of a work initiated close to ten years ago.
“A delicious dichotomy continues throughout the work reminding us that there is as much struggle as joy in artistic creation.” — The Globe and Mail
PORTRAIT was first mounted at the former Theatre Centre to critical acclaim and was subsequently selected for the Festival TransAmériques (FTA) in Montreal. A multi-disciplinary dance work with a sound-score by Gilles Goyette and video by Nico Stagias, PORTRAIT lingers in the liminal spaces between performance art, theatre, dance and film, highlighting the creative act itself and dynamics between artist, audience and muse.
