RIATOSS PRODUCTIONS: iT
RiaToss Productions is previewing a new theatrical performance-art piece entitled “iT.”, directed and choreographed by Ross Wirtanen. Influenced by pop culture icons of the past, our quirky protagonist retreats into a fantasy world to better understand his complex gender identity through fashion, music and dance. Expect a visually stunning and immersive runway experience that explores self love and acceptance, in the most unusual & non-conforming way.
RiaToss Productions is a theatrical performance art company that delves into the imagination and artistry of founder and director, Ross Wirtanen. Established in 2012 with the help of co-director Tia Haraga, RiaToss explores the extravagant escapism of pop culture through mediums such as dance, fashion, photography and film. This infectious combination of over-the-top personality and eccentric style has caught the attention of Canada’s most prominent entertainment figures.
Their first full-length production of “Marina Antoinette” has been performed at notable Toronto venues such as Casaloma, The Carlu, The Spoke Club and World Pride 2014. RiaToss Productions has also been a headlining act on the runway for three years at Fashion Art Toronto with their fashion forward showcases of dance and performance art. Most recently, RiaToss acted as an instrumental director in the creation of the inaugural FLAUNT Festival, a wearable art and fashion extravaganza at The Harbourfront Centre.
