Lîla Ensemble is a free-spirited group of dancers and musicians based out of Toronto, Canada who explore the relationship between music and movement. We are at once a dance company and a musical group and we present our work in theaters, music clubs and a variety of non-traditional spaces. We are driven by a spirit of adventure, honest expression and by a deeply held cross-disciplinary interest. Since our inception we have presented audiences in Toronto and around Europe with poignant and dynamic shows to wide acclaim.
After a successful tour to Europe last summer and a busy year of performances in Toronto including a residency with coexisDance, we are thrilled to be heading to the East Coast for a spring tour. While in Halifax, we will be performing at 1313 Hollis St. on Monday, May 20th at 8:00pm. We are incredibly lucky to be performing with amazing local artists Susanne Chui (dance) and Geordie Haley (guitar), as well as international improviser, Doug Tielli! We will also be hosting a knowledge exchange with local improvisers, focusing on developing new and interesting ways of engaging across disciples in a free improvisation context. This will be taking place on Monday as well, from 12:00-4:00pm, at the same location. Halifax here we come!
