ps: We Are All Here…2016



fb_header1 (1)

A series of curated dance works from around the world and around the corner.

This July, Toronto Dance Community Love-In brings you Toronto’s only series exclusively for experimental contemporary dance, featuring a lineup of Canadian and International artists in a pop-up, low tech setting. Run in tandem with the Summer Love-In dance intensive, ps. reminds us that great dance work can live in the Toronto’s west end.

Presented in an intimate and casual setting that encourages discourse and engagement, ps: We Are All Here creates a space for taking in and taking on the questions that arise over contemporary movement practice. These dance nerds search to connect with their audiences and demystify dance.

See a different double or triple bill show every night and join us for discussions around why and how we make the choices we do.

Curated by the Love-In team, ps: We Are All Here pairs local and international makers for a series of performances and transforms Geary Lane into a performance sphere of  the 15 artists showing work. Making a space for discussion, time to think and two weeks of mover thinker mayhem.

Artists that will be making it, breaking it, and putting it all back together again. Don’t miss it!

Both weeks will include Friday night post-performance PARTIES with live music / DJ sets.

Cash bar and snacks provided by California Sandwhiches and Sovereign Coffee bar.
