Who We Are
KOKUS Productions is an entertainment company established by Director and Founder Lukas Press & Director/choreographer Rebecca Reinhart. Together they bring their passion and drive to the company in order to strengthen the performance skills of those who aspire to be a part of, or are already in, the professional scene. KOKUS Productions offers performers much more than any other dance company in Toronto, giving an opportunity to get professional training in three disciplines from the industry’s best and experienced teachers (dancing, singing, and acting). KOKUS Productions understand that versatility is one of the greatest strengths of a performing artist,and that is exactly what we aim to establish: a versatile performer. Our mission is to create great performer who will embody the invaluable disciplines of dancing, singing and acting.
Numbers by KOKUS Productions about love, fear, and hope from a little girl's point of view. She recalls memories about the time her parents met each other during 1930's Poland to the end of the WWII.
This theatrical performance combines stunning contemporary dance pieces choreographed in various styles from swing to hip-hop, and involves an eclectic selection of music, original songs and drama. Numbers combines the forces of war, life and creation through the expression of some of Toronto's finest dancers, performers and artists. Numbers is able to remain entertaining and unique while never losing sight of the sensitive subject that has been explored in so many ways before.
Our creative team is looking to continue with this production and travel to Montreal, Ottawa, and London - with future hopes to travel to Germany, Poland, and Israel! We would love to create a trailer for production, in hopes of marketing to further audiences and promote our work of art/historical teachings. The money raised is also going towards the creation and delivery of our production – costumes, make-up, props, traveling, promotional materials, and more.
Thank you for your consideration !
