Dusk Dances Delights

If you’re in the mood for both nature and artistic expression, then Dusk Dances, now in its 22nd year, is coming to Withrow Park August 1 - 7, and will feature 5 contemporary dance pieces by local Canadian choreographers and dancers. This year's Dusk Dances will feature gay dancer Michael Caldwell presenting a new dance piece called Waves.

Michael Caldwell is a Toronto-based choreographer/performer. A graduate of The School of Toronto Dance Theatre, he has interpreted roles for many of Canada's esteemed dance creators and companies, and has performed across Canada and the United States, in Europe, Asia, and Australia. In Waves, Michael seeks to incorporate cinematic sensibilities in all his work. Through a simplistic world of movement and sound, Waves tells a poignant story about three lonely characters, played by Mairéad Filgate, Molly Johnson, and Meredith Thompson with an original composition and live performance by Kyle Brenders. Sounds hot.

The other performances sound interesting as well, like Auto-Fiction, which features three dancers who walk, run, roll, propel and fall all over a car embedded in the middle of the park. Each evening during Dusk Dances, the audience will be guided to different locations across the park to witness short dance pieces. The show will be hosted by Allegra Charleston (a.k.a. Susie Burpee), with a special musical performance by Toronto's own Doubletooth, and a free Nia movement class. And when it’s all over, you can cruise the park! So turn off Netflix and get down with some choreography in the great outdoors.
