The Chimera Project


The Chimera Project is one of Toronto’s most well-known contemporary dance companies.

“Powerful, risk-taking and fiercely contemporary, The Chimera Project creates visceral theatre experiences that break down the social veneer between audience and performer. Founded in 1999 by award-winning choreographer Malgorzata Nowacka, The Chimera Project confronts the audience with high-octane physicality, ferocious technique and darkly gritty themes.

I’ve had the pleasure of working on two different shows with The Chimera Project over the past couple of years. I’ve worked on two different concepts for both Blood and The Hidden Spot. Both times each mounting of the productions had different designs, each time more refined from the first.

The refined designs tend towards the more minimalist in keeping with the type of dance and presentation the company creates.
