2013 will mark the 25th anniversary of the Dancing on the Edge Festival;
one of Canada’s longest running contemporary dance festivals!
Our host Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg will lead you through four eclectic dance pieces.

Onward Ho, My Love

Choreography by JULIA APLIN WITH tiger princess dance projects

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.
