A Word from the Festival Director
"Now in its 21st season, Dusk Dances is set against the natural landscape of your neighbourhood park.
Your journey is accompanied by a host who leads you to selected dance pieces located in different areas throughout the park. Featuring some of Canada’s most innovative and engaging dancers and choreographers, Dusk Dances continues to be a delight for audiences of all ages.
This year, be charmed by the presentation of Tedd Robinson’s Disconcertante, a masterful 30 minute work to close our program, performed by dancers of Cloud 9.”
Sylvie Bouchard, Festival Director
RAIN CANCELLATION POLICY
Dusk Dances rarely cancels a show in advance of the start time due to poor weather. All of our artists and volunteers are present at the park (even if it's pouring), and should the clouds part, the sun start to shine, and it's safe to perform, they are ready to go. An announcement is generally made at the park between 7pm and 7:30pm if the show has been cancelled.
A good rule of thumb to assess whether or not to attend a Dusk Dances performance when the weather looks bad: if it's raining where you are when you need to leave to come to the park, perhaps think about coming on a different night.
