Stereophonic is a mixed bill of five multi-dimensional contemporary dance works choreographed by legendary dance artist Peggy Baker, including three world premieres, and re-interpretations by members of her ensemble of two of her landmark solos. This stunning evening features acclaimed pianist John Kameel Farah and a company of exquisite dancers. Scroll below for a first look at the pieces!

The centrepiece of Stereophonic is the world premiere of Split Screen Stereophonic wherein Baker choreographs duets that explore intimate relationships, investigating the chemistry of the personal and private worlds between men and women, with two couples simultaneously on a stage cut into right and left halves.

Also premiering are Aleatoric Solo No. 1 (for dancer Sahara Morimoto) and a new solo, choreographed and performed by Baker herself, epilogue.

Rounding out the program are two landmark solos by Baker interpreted by others: Encoded Revision (1996) performed by Benjamin Kamino and In a Landscape (1995), performed by Andrea Nann.

Peggy Baker Dance Projects presents Stereophonic, Wednesday, February 27 - Sunday, March 3, 2013, at the Betty Oliphant Theatre, 404 Jarvis Street, Toronto. Performances run Wed-Sat at 8:30pm, Sun matinee at 4pm.

General Admission Wed-Sun: $30 ($25 Students/Seniors/CADA); Premium Tickets: $75 available for Sunday March 3 (includes show and Meet-the-Artists Reception after); PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN: Thursday, February 28 (door sales only). Box Office: 1-800-838-3006 OR online at www.peggybakerdance.com.
