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.

A Mix of Light and Shadows

Dusk Dances 2015 By Mark Mann Dusk Dances

Dance rarely draws big crowds, and when it does, people don’t usually sprint and scramble for front-row seats. But such was the case at the opening of the twenty-first annual Dusk Dances, where 600 people – and many fine dogs – rushed back and forth across Withrow Park in Toronto’s east end to catch the best possible view of all five performances in this year’s program.
