WTF! Acrobatic Dancers To Twirl Down Libeskind’s New Tower In Toronto
October 10, 2012
If you’re in Toronto today, be sure to keep an eye out for aerial artists and acrobats hanging and playing around Daniel Libeskind’s L Tower. The nearly finished luxury condo building is celebrating its “Topping Off,” the completion of its skeletal structure and almost half of the glass and steel facade, with an acrobatic dance routine like no other. Five members of the Vancouver-based Aeriosa Dance Society will gracefully whirl down the 58-story building to the tune of Bach’s “Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello” played live by Toronto musician Liza McLellan. (By the way, we have a better way to celebrate a building: Check out the Architizer A+ Awards!)
The L Tower is not only another beautiful architectural feat for Libeskind, but it is also part of the revitalization of the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts, which is transforming the cultural landscape of Toronto. See more!
