Darryl Tracy is a Toronto-based independent dance artist (choreographer, interpreter, teacher, and producer). He is a senior faculty member at The School of Toronto Dance Theatre, and as a dancer has created roles by many of Canada’s leading choreographers. He and Heidi Strauss were co-artistic directors of Four Chambers dance projects from 1999-2006, commissioning duets from choreographers including Conrad Alexandrowicz, Marie-Josée Chartier, Sarah Chase, Yvonne Coutts, Lesandra Dodson, Sylvain Émard, and Julia Sasso; their duet created by Italian-based company Deja Donne garnered them a nomination in performance for the prestigious Dora Mavor Moore Award. In 2004, Tracy was nominated top dancer in Toronto by NOW magazine, and he was nominated for the K.M. Hunter Award in 2013.
Tracy was part of the company Sylvain Émard Danse in Montreal for over four years, dancing and touring in Émard’s Temps de chien. He has created over 32 of his own works through commissions and self-produced events. Most recently, he has choreographed for Connection Dance (Saint John), École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, The School of Dance (Ottawa), and The School of Toronto Dance Theatre.
His most recent professional works have been performance art installations and video shorts, seen at Rhubarb Festival, Inside Out Festival, and Nuit Rose Festival. He premiered two new works in October 2017 at The Imperial Theatre in Saint John, NB.
