Dancock's Dance by Guy Vanderhaege
Presented by The Hogtown Collective and Campbell House Museum
Directed by Sam Rosenthal
Written by Guy Vanderhaeghe
Adapted by Drew Carnwath
Dancock's Dance is an exciting new piece of immersive theatre from the creative team behind the 2016 smash hit THE HOGTOWN EXPERIENCE (which made the must see and top ten list for Globe and Mail, Toronto Life, NOW Magazine, among others).
World War One soldier John Carlyle Dancock returns from France shell-shocked and haunted by the sins of war. He is also judged unfit for society, and so is committed to an insane asylum, trapped by his own conscience and by the rigid rules of authority. In his struggle to survive Dancock manages to find redemption and deliverance - and the possibility of love - when he connects with a fellow inmate, the mysterious Dorothea Gage.
In this groundbreaking production of Guy Vanderhaeghe's play, THE HOGTOWN COLLECTIVE re-imagines Dancock's Dance with original music and dance, all set in Toronto's historic Campbell House Museum. Audience members are once again invited to experience the play from room to room in the newly-converted asylum, brought to life with powerful performances and an eye-popping set and lighting design. Dancock's Dance will leave you breathless, thanks to the stark lyricism of Vanderhaegue's poetry. It will also redefine the possibilities of what theatre can be, and what theatre can do.
