Footsteps Across Canada

A Journey Across Canada's African Diaspora By Colleen Snell Footsteps Across Canada

While the choreographic work varied drastically from one piece to the next, universal themes of loss, tradition, internal struggle, displacement and the challenges posed by communication wove the dances together.

Not Your Average Swan Lake

Bare feet striking the floor, clapping hands, swaying hips and voices punctuating the rhythm of the dance are all in this version of the classic by South African choreographer Dada Masilo.
