APR 26 - MAY 6, 2018
In this hybrid musical performance, Njo Kong Kie, long-serving music director of Montreal's La La La Human Steps, introduces the Macau-based Folga Gaang Project in their Toronto debut. Picnic in the Cemetery juxtaposes the macabre with the whimsical in an abstract expression of our collective journey through the passage of time. Quirky and evocative, this concert-theatre featuring original compositions for violin, cello and piano is an invitation to muse about dying, but more importantly to reflect on living.

IN RESIDENCE 17.18/18.19
Njo Kong Kie is a Toronto composer of dance, opera and theatre. His compositions have been heard in productions of such companies as Nederlands Dans Theater, Ballet National de L'Opera du Rhin, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Singapore Dance Theatre and Ballet BC. His latest works include Infinity (Volcano/Tarragon) and Mr. Shi and His Lover (SummerWorks).
