The performance features 16 vignettes (or ‘marvels’) created by eight local choreographers and performed by over 50 professional and community-based Toronto artists including independent dancers, recent professional dance program graduates, and an enthusiastic team of bankers from The RBC Bank Notes. Seen through the lens of Crozier’s award-winning poetic voice, everyday objects such as a bowl, a vacuum, and bobby pins assume integral roles in human evolution and our expression as a species.
