Luminato Dance: The Canadians 

By Michael Crabb “Tono”, “Skin Divers”, “The Second Person” Sandra Laronde, Red Sky Performance, Dominique Dumais, The National Ballet of Canada, Crystal Pite, Nederlands Dans Theater

By Susan Kendal "Fading Shadows / Returning Echoes" Yvonne Ng, Robert Glumbek, Dominique Dumais, Tedd Robinson

With poignancy and precision, the program of three works featured the dancers’ strengths and vulnerabilities, both personal and archetypal.
