LOOKING FOR THE DANCE: The photography of Mikhail Baryshnikov.

Lighthouse Immersive

North American Premiere. September 18 to October 17, 2021.

https://torontoguardian.com/2021/08/mikhail-baryshnikov-photo-exhibition/

Nothing fills our creative flowing hearts more than seeing our city embracing the arts and culture scene once again. The latest announcement includes two exhilarating new installations coming this September. As the city cautiously re-opens, we’re excited to learn that The Photography of Mikhail Baryshnikov: Looking For The Dance and TOUCH, a new immersive dance work from Guillaume Côté and Thomas Payette are slated to open in one of the most fascinating spaces in the city. Both installations will be housed at the former Toronto Star printing press warehouse at One Yonge Street. Yes, it’s also where the Immersive Van Gogh experience and the Jamie Allan’s Illusionarium, both produced by Lighthouse Immersive, are currently wowing locals and tourists alike.
