Getting to know Older & Reckless artist DARRYL TRACY

September 26, 2017


Darryl Tracy is well-loved in the Toronto dance community. A senior faculty member at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre, Darryl has trained and inspired many a young dance light. A dynamic performer, he joined forces with Heidi Strauss under Four Chambers dance projects from 1999-2006, commissioning duets from renowned Canadian creators. Tracy has been nominated top dancer in Toronto by NOW magazine, and for the K.M. Hunter Award.

At O&R#40, Darryl and Ric Brown, now in their 50’s, will perform In Two Days a Man Can Change by Lesandra Dodson. “Her duet for dancers Darryl Tracy and Ric Brown radiates her delicious and droll take on the foibles of humankind.” – Paula Citron, Globe & Mail

“Ric and I started dancing together way back when we were baby dancers and have been lifelong friends and buddies. In Two Days a Man Can Change is a great deal about our friendship. We have many opportunities to perform this work and it ages with us- deepens somehow.”- Darryl Tracy


Who/what inspires you?

Almost all of my colleagues


When did you know you wanted to be a dancer?

As long as I have remembered


Who was your most significant teacher and why?

Pat Miner continues to make a huge impact on my life as an artist and as a mover. She has a unique ability to provoke without imposing.


What is the best part of being an older performer?

The money...haha- I think the ability to call upon life experiences inside process and inside performance.
