Named one of the top 15 things to see at Nuit Blanche by both Toronto Life and The Globe and Mail, Shannon Litzenberger’s Everyday Marvels is an episodic performance installation based on Governor General Award-winning poet Lorna Crozier’s “The Book of Marvels – A compendium of everyday things”. Everyday Marvels brings to life the objects we too often take for granted…a flashlight, spoons, a radiator.

Directed by Shannon Litzenberger, in collaboration with Susie Burpee and Marie-Josée Chartier, Everyday Marvels features thirteen short vignettes, performed by over 25 professional and community-based dancers, including an enthusiastic team of bankers from the Royal Bank of Canada’s premiere dance group – The Mobile Assets.
