Art of Time presents The Kreutzer Sonata in dance & music & theatre

Featuring Ted Dykstra in his adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's novella of the same nameand the choreography of James Kudelka danced by Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie to Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata, performed byAndrew Burashko on piano and violinist Marie Bérard.

Toronto, February 24, 2010 - Capitalizing on the tremendous sold-out success of The Kreutzer Sonata last season, the Art of Time Ensemble, under the artistic direction of founder Andrew Burashko, re-stages this outstanding concert evening inspired by and featuring Ludwig Van Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata (Sonata for violin and piano No. 9 in A Major, Op. 47) at Harbourfront Centre's Enwave Theatre from March 18-21, 2010.

Sponsored by BMO Financial, this unique evening moves in a bold direction with a collage of theatre, dance and music that features a dramatic adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's passionate novella, The Kreutzer Sonata, written and performed by award-winning actor/director Ted Dykstra.
The second half features James Kudelka's 15 Heterosexual Duets: a virtuosic work choreographed by one of Canada's most eminent choreographers to Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata, and danced by the acclaimed Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie to the accompaniment of Andrew Burashko on piano and Marie Bérard on violin. Like the Tolstoy story, it explores the male/female relationship.

Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie is led by Bill Coleman and Laurence Lemieux, who are also life partners. 15 Heterosexual Duets features some of the most talented dancers in the country:
Kate Alton
Valerie Calam
Michael Caldwell
Lauren Chin
Bill Coleman
Luke Garwood
Andrew Giday
Jones Henry
Sylvain Lafortune
Laurence Lemieux
Graham McKelvie

Founded by Artistic Director Andrew Burashko, the Art of Time Ensemble is now in its 11th season. Art of Time provides a unique musical experience that breaks down barriers between artistic and musical disciplines, and reveals the vibrancy of classical music as a contemporary artistic expression, appealing to a range of audiences. Its concerts are provocative, engaging and accessible to people unfamiliar with classical music, but also immensely fulfilling to aficionados. Currently, Art of Time is on tour with singer Steven Page in support of the release this month of its latest CD, A Singer Must Die.
The 2009/2010 season features performances by Emilie-Claire Barlow, Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie, Guinga, Kevin Hearn, Gregory Hoskins, Raine Maida, Andy Maize, Peter Mettler, Andrea Nann, Steven Page, Alejandra Ribera, Sarah Slean, John Southworth and R.H. Thomson, plus some of the finest classical and jazz musicians in the country.
