The 2012 Annual Shows: The directors take the ring
The School recently announced the names of the creators who will direct the year-end shows presented by advanced students. Circus artist and School graduate Anthony Venisse (2001) will create one of the two shows to be performed at Tohu in Montreal from May 29 to June 10. He will be assisted by Manuel Roque (2000). In charge of the other show is Canadian choreographer Sharon Moore, who in 2007 created a work for the Creation and Exploration Workshop. She will be assisted by Howard Richard, the School’s director of creation. The two shows will be presented in alternating performances, with tickets on sale as of mid-April at the Tohu box office.
The Annual Shows' prelude performances will be conducted by Marie-Josée Gauthier and Catherine Tardif. The show by preparatory program students will be directed by Sébastien Guindon and the Circus and High School Studies show by Jesse Dryden. These shows will be reprised on May 25, 26 and 27 at the National Circus School.
