A physically and emotionally charged work, Sable Island embodies the relentless sway of the fierce ocean encircling the famous isle and the mystery, isolation and untamed spirit of the wild horses that live there.
Masterfully performed by a quintet of dancers, this powerful work features and an original musical score by Montréal composer Bertrand Chénier, who transforms the theatre into a windswept island, ocean floor and rocky shoreline, with a poetic palette of piano, bass, and mandolin.
Sable Island is at The Harbourfront Theatre March 11th at 7:30 PM.
