      DanceWorks presents
      tiger princess dance projects with
      MIXED REPERTOIRE

      DanceWorks, Toronto's longest running contemporary dance series, presents Yvonne Ng’s acclaimed tiger princess dance projects in a Mixed Repertoire program, April 28 – 30 at 8pm nightly at Harbourfront Centre’s Enwave Theatre.

      The evening features four exquisite works – 3 of them world premieres - by talented choreographers Robert Glumbek, Kevin O'Day and Tedd Robinson, all performed by Glumbek and Ng, who the Toronto Star has described as “the John Lennon and Yoko Ono of dance. Physically mismatched, they become the marriage of true minds on a stage.”

      The pieces include:
      - a remount of Glumbek’s extraordinary A Tale Begun, a duet in which he and Yvonne Ng perform with her strapped to his back.
      - an autobiographical solo for Glumbek created by himself in collaboration with Ng, Roberto Campanella, Kevin O’Day,and Luches Huddleston Jr.;
      - a duet by O’Day that capitalizes on the extreme physical differences of Glumbek and Ng;
      - and a solo for Ng by Robinson that explores the magic of maintaining balance during an act of transformation

      Founded by Yvonne Ng in 1995 under the umbrella of princess productions, tiger princess dance projects creates works that reflect Ng's uniquely Canadian experience as an immigrant and visible minority. The company’s works have been shown across Canada, Australia and in Singapore, and have received critical and commercial acclaim. Ng is a Dora Mavor Moore Award winner and has been nominated eight times for performance and choreography. Her other awards include the prestigious K.M. Hunter Dance Award, the New Pioneers Arts Award, a Chalmers Arts Fellowship and the Premier’s Emerging Artist Arts Award, which she received in 2007 along with Canadian dance legend Peggy Baker.
