AS A LICENSEE OF DUSK DANCES INC.

Opening Band: Junkyard Symphony
Out Of The Box
Choreography by Renata Soutter & Jessie Huggett
of Propeller Dance
Performed by AJ Ayson, Ada Chan, Heather Croisier, Amelia Griffin,
Jessie Huggett and Mike Hurley-Trinque
Imagine a world where being yourself is a good thing;
a world where people don’t put you in a box. If you ever feel boxed in,
find your friends, build your community, be ready to deconstruct
and build up again, and have fun and dance through the process!
Performed by Anjali Patil, Grishma Hirode, Sadiyah Samsuzzaman Borna,
Gaurav Bhatti and Divya Viswanathan
Shiva is both the maker and destroyer, and as the god of
paradox and contradiction, this dual nature of existence
inspired Anjali Patil's group work set upon five dynamic Kathak dancers.
Performed by Brodie Stevenson and Brendan Wyatt
A piece inspired by our fear of nightfall and darkness.
Onward Ho, My Love
Performed by Yvonne Ng and Brendan Wyatt
Onward Ho, My Love is a duet of a man in a top hat, a woman in a red gown. A path to be taken. What happens along the journey may be seen as questionable, amusing, strange, interesting, odd, joyful, sad, elegant, rough, tender, harsh, perhaps even confusing but always with the wild sense of commitment, integrity and bravery that the dancers bring to the work.
Performed by Mairéad Filgate, Molly Johnson, Meredith Thompson
Yvonne Ng and Brodie Stevenson.
A fantastical journey into the topsy-turvy world of a hapless caretaker,
3 dancers, and a nine-foot tall accordion-playing matriarch.
