A Mix of Light and Shadows

Dusk Dances 2015 By Mark Mann Dusk Dances

Dance rarely draws big crowds, and when it does, people don’t usually sprint and scramble for front-row seats. But such was the case at the opening of the twenty-first annual Dusk Dances, where 600 people – and many fine dogs – rushed back and forth across Withrow Park in Toronto’s east end to catch the best possible view of all five performances in this year’s program.

BOW’T by Rhodnie Désir

“This significant evening-length political work explores notions of homeland, and a journey from an immigrant ship to the factory floor,” says Philip Szporer of Désir’s new work, a performance highlight in the March/April 2015 issue.

Reflections on 2014

By Philip Szporer

What follows is a consideration of work that I saw in 2014, listed in no particular order. It is also a message of gratitude to those creators who unfailingly push forward, break boundaries, develop their vision and create worlds in which we, as audiences, can be inspired and challenged.
