1981 FM

Choreographed by Throwdown Collective

Performed by Zhenya Cerneacov, Mairéad Filgate, Brodie Stevenson.

Throwdown Collective returns with their third
and most daring piece yet. This time the dynamic trio combines
their signature high-paced and energetic physicality with a vaguely vintage car.
Come see the trio re-invent the classic afternoon drive.

First premiered at Dusk Dances 2013.

Unquiet Winds

Choreographed by Denise Fujiwara

Performed by Sylvie Bouchard and Brendan Wyatt

Unquiet Winds was inspired by medieval Japanese and European love poems. Its creation employs principles of Japanese Butoh dance.

I saw a girl under green laurel
Colder and whiter than the snow
Untouched by the sun for many years
”.
Francesco Petrarch

Imperceptible
It withers in the world
This flower-like human heart
.”
Komachi

First premiered at Dusk Dances 2013.

Inner City Sirens, PART II

Reigning World Champions in the sport of pairs synchronized swimming

Evenfall

Choreographed by Julie Barban

As the sun sets, we see the Man in the Moon and his moon rising. His moon’s light draws out all the moths of the night including the beautiful Luna Moth. Instead of the Luna Moth being drawn to the light of the Man in the Moon, we witness the reverse, he is drawn to her. The dance reveals how this relationship unfurls.

Premieres at Dusk Dances Haliburton 2014.
