The Inertia of a Heavy Heart

DA Hoskins By Emma Doran Jackie Burroughs is Dead (and what are you going to do about it?)

Heavy-hearted, but not without curiosity, Hoskins’ choreography in this work is captive to gravity, and the dancers (purposefully) crumple under its inertia.

Summer Banquet

Ever since the late, lamented fFIDA (fringe Festival of Independent Dance Artists) exited the scene in 2006, Toronto dance aficionados have been without their August fix. Happily, the new festival dance: made in canada/fait au canada (d: mic/fac) is filling that void.

A Commitment to the Future

By Kathleen Smith Toronto International Dance Festival (a fFIDA presentation) Toronto International Dance Festival

For fifteen years, the fringe Festival of Independent Dance Artists (fFIDA) has presented a mixed bag of dance over an extended period in August. Chosen by lottery and stacked into mixed programs and large-scale spectaculars, the dance viewing experience has also been a crapshoot. Some years it was mostly dross with a few buried treasures; in others, the riches made you feel hopeful for the future of dance in Canada.
