By this time, our communities have come to expect the cancelling of live performances due to the severe danger of the current health crisis.
The live performances of both Rocking Horse Winner and Iron Road in Concert have been cancelled, a sad but necessary measure to keep our artist and audience communities safe. We believe deeply in the long lives of both of these productions, and look forward to new opportunities to revisit Iron Road and Rocking Horse Winner in future seasons. Our hearts go out to the team and artists at Toronto Summer Music, who have cancelled the entire 2020 festival at which Iron Road in Concert was to be presented.
We aren’t letting distance slow us down
While Rocking Horse Winner will not have a live performance, we have committed to honouring the full amount of every artist’s contract, and long-distance rehearsals begin next week – we may not know quite what will manifest, but we know that there is a truly incredible group of performers gathering around their laptops to make music, and that some beautiful and prescient art will come out of that. Stay tuned!
While we’re so disappointed not to bring these stirring, evocative pieces back to vivid life, we know that this is not the end of these shows or the incredible cast of Rocking Horse Winner. Follow us on social media and watch this space for videos and announcements!
