This year’s dance: made in canada festival hosts, in partnership with Dance Collection Danse, the Toronto premiere of A Good Madness – The Dance of Rachel Browne, a full-length dance documentary written, directed and produced by Danielle Sturk. The documentary on Rachel Browne (1934-2012), founder of Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers, Canada’s oldest professional modern dance company, captures the essence of the woman and the power of the dance she created, exposing her unwavering desire to create dance to the exclusion of all else. 
 
Founded in 2000, dance: made in canada/fait au canada is a one-of-a-kind presenting platform of works from across the country. Since 2011, guest curators have been invited to select a series of works to be presented. This year, Tedd Robinson of 10 Gates Dancing and musician, composer, artist Debashis Sinha curate the festival with artistic director Yvonne Ng. Their thinking and decision-making revealed in the July/August 2015 issue.
