Upcoming

land|body|breath
July 13th (2:30pm & 6:00pm) at the National Gallery of Canada

We are very excited to announce that Peggy and her dancers will head to Ottawa in July for the National Arts Centre’s Canada Scene, which brings together over 1,000 talented artists for an extraordinary national celebration. Peggy’s ensemble will be performing her 2014 installation land | body | breath at the National Gallery of Canada.

land | body | breath is a site specific, immersive performance work situated in the National Gallery of Canada’s Contemporary Canadian Galleries, performed by vocalists Fides Krucker and Ciara Adams and dancers Nicole Rose Bond,  Sarah Fregeau, Sahara Morimoto, Andrea Nann, David Norsworthy, Jessica Runge, Mateo Galindo Torres and William Yong. The dancers are encountered in individual galleries before joining forces in a central space, and the voices of all 10 performers ring through the network of galleries creating a rich soundscape of melodies, text, and sonic textures. The audience, fluid and mobile, travels through the galleries, crafting their own highly personal experience of the performance.

dance: made in canada / fait au canada Festival
August 19th (2:00pm) at the Betty Oliphant Theatre

Since its inception in 2001, d:mic/fac Festival has presented a cross-section of contemporary Canadian dance makers.  The festival provides a platform for experimentation and collaboration with other arts disciplines, cross-pollinating artists both geographically and experientially and contributes to arts education in our community through a spectrum of engagement activities.

For the past few years, our August Intensive has partnered with Dance: Made in Canada / Fait au Canada to offer a sensational performance opportunity for dancers in the Repertory Stream. Join us on Saturday August 19th at the Betty Oliphant theatre to celebrate the accomplishments of those who have taken part in our Repertory Stream.
