Tono

Red Sky Performance

On a vast landscape that is equal parts Albertan prairie and Mongolian plain, six dancers embody the elegant majesty of a stampeding herd, dancing through shamanistic cycles to the sounds of live throat-singing and the native instruments of three cultures. An exhilarating fusion of Canadian, Mongolian and Chinese indigenous cultures, Tono was performed at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and comes to Calgary en-route to Vancouver’s 2010 Cultural Olympiad.

Original music from Tono:

 

"Tono is a ravishingly beautiful dance work. The six dancers recreate a stampede that builds with excitement...absolutely stunning stretches and body twists. Clever sequences abound."
- Globe and Mail

"Vividly and viscerally illustrates Laronde's discoveries of meeting points among Indigenous cultures."
- Dance International

"The full dancing ensemble moved with driving robustness, finesse and with a sense of the unseen mystery throughout."
- Scene 4 Magazine

"Tono is an extraordinarily beautiful show: stunning music, extreme athleticism, gorgeous images and wit. I found it very moving - so thank you for bringing it to us."
- Ric Knowles, Canadian Theatre Review

"Red Sky Shines over Banff"
- Calgary Herald

"From the moment the lights went down in Toronto's Fleck Dance Theatre, Tono's epic, cinematic story captured the hearts of every lucky Luminato Festival attendee."
- Sarah Beaudin, Webzine
