Lina Cruz, Artistic Director of Fila 13, is a prolific creator from Montreal with an astonishing imagination.

Soupe du Jour received the 2012 Dora Mavor Moore Awards for Outstanding Choreography by Cruz and for Outstanding Sound Design/Composition by Lina’s musical collaborator, Philippe Noireaut. Last month, Danceworks presented Lina and Philippe’s breath-taking commission for Throwdown Collective, Ylem (3 Eggs Ago) at Harbourfront Centre Theatre.
Over the years, Lina and Philippe have participated in a range of Toronto dance/music performances including Series 8:08, events curated by Norma Araiza, Jim Montgomery and the Music Gallery, Toronto Dance Theatre's Four at the Winch Quebec and Older & Reckless.Lina and Philippe “are grateful for these precious opportunities and salute the Toronto dance community which is so creatively and diligently managed by its talented members.” The Cloud 9 program will be performed on alternating evenings with Kaeja D’Dance’s program, May 9- 20, at The Theatre Centre.Click here for Tickets and more information.
