“I intend to co-create with the group a piece that will give us a framework and occasion to make something happen in the world, beyond something that is a representation of an idea, a philosophy, an emotion.” – Peter Chin

The 2022 Older & Reckless program also features 4 legendary dance artists in 3 stunning works. Nova Bhattacharya performs Calm Abiding by José Navas, a contemporary choreographer/dancer born in Venezuela and based in Montreal; Emilyn Claid, from the UK will perform an except of her new solo evening; and urban dance icon, Crazy Smooth, will perform a duet with Saxon Fraser.

Moonhorse is honoured to feature magnificent senior artists of many nations and backgrounds in the return to live performance with Older & Reckless. Older & Reckless, “a gem in the Toronto dance scene” (Michael Crabb, Toronto Star) conceived by Claudia Moore, founder and artistic director of Moonhorse Dance Theatre, is a dance series acclaimed for its celebration of mature dance artists and their tenacious life-long pursuit of physical expression. Appealing not only to a senior audience, but to all generations, Older & Reckless shines a light on those Canadian and international dance artists who continue to pursue their passion and share it as performers, teachers, mentors and advocates for the Arts.
