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.
