Exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Toronto’s WinterCity Festival
Capture behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage of “Carillon - The Flight of Time” from Italy’s renowned Kitonb Extreme Theatre Company this Thursday at Nathan Phillips Square. A 360-degree experience, this urban theatre production is performed outdoors on multiple stages on the Square, and includes a seven-metre tower woven with more than 600 metres of elastic rope that the dancers/acrobats use to dive, twist and fall.

Date: Thursday, January 25
Time: 6 p.m.
Location: Nathan Phillips Square, 100 Queen St. W.

The award-winning WinterCity runs from January 26 to February 8. For two weeks the festival shines a spotlight on Toronto’s creative and talented performers, diverse hospitality industry, and world-class attractions.

Visit the American Express Ice Gallery to view British Columbia artist Gordon Halloran’s unique works, and check out the Nathan Phillips Square ice rink to see people skate over his ice painting.
