Theatre Production First Dance is getting Married

First Dance is getting Married. Well... Sort of. We were very happy to present a workshop production of First Dance last year at the Button Factory... and now have an almost parental glow knowing that we're co-presenting a more-mature version of the production.

First Dance Tour 2012

Tottering Biped Theatre, in partnership with MT Space and Neruda Productions, presents

First Dance

Conceived and Created by Trevor Copp, Jeff Fox & Lisa O'Connell
September 27 & 28 | 8:00 PM | University of Waterloo's Theatre of the Arts

As gay marriage becomes legal in Canada, a man who is about to marry his male partner embarks on devising their traditional First Dance. Through ballroom dance and theatre, his journey as a gay man is explored through the challenge of creating a dance for a ritual that has no history.

“They move with considerable style, grace, strength and precision…a sparkling gem that needs little polishing.”
- Dennis Smith, Burlington Post
