When did you first fall in love? Christopher Walker, a Jamaican choreographer working out of the USA, and Kevin A. Ormsby, Artistic Director of Toronto’s KasheDance, join forces for FACING Home: Love & Redemption, a powerful contemporary dance production that investigates the global impact of Bob Marley’s music - its expression of humanity’s struggle and its inspiration toward love, redemption and hope - and contrasts it to the deep-rooted homophobia in Jamaican/West Indian Culture.

The two choreographers aim to engage communities in conversation about homophobia using movement, music and poetry to access ideas of liberation and highlight the blurred lines between love, survival and choice.

FACING Home: Love & Redemption draws from the many influences of reggae music and Jamaican culture and is set to covers of Bob Marley’s songs by Matisyahou of New York City, Luciano of Jamaica and Jonathon Butler of South Africa, among others.
