dance Immersion proudly presents
A Moving History of Canadian Blacks in Dance
February 1-2, 2013 at Fleck Dance Theatre
In celebration of Black History Month, dance Immersion presents TRIBUTE: A Moving History of Canadian Blacks in Dance, as part of Harbourfront Centre’s NextSteps. TRIBUTE is an exciting multi-media event honouring nine dance icons from across Canada, including Len Gibson, Kevin Pugh, George Randolph and others. Among the performers are Montreal’s Compagnie Danse Nyata Nyata, as well as the TRIBUTE Crew, an ensemble cast of gifted youth from COBA and the Children and Youth Dance Theatre of Toronto who anchor a powerful evening of dance embracing folkloric, traditional and contemporary forms.
While TRIBUTE offers a theatrical peek into the history and artistry of “Canadian Blacks in Dance,” it also highlights how these groundbreakers have inspired a whole new generation of dance artists and movement.
The event’s talented choreographers include Kevin Ormsby, Artistic Director of KasheDance, and the venerable Danny Grossman. The award-winning Len D. Henry is the Creative Director for the evening.
dance Immersion is a Toronto-based organization that produces and promotes dancers and dances of the African Diaspora while providing skill development and networking through workshops, youth arts programs, collaborative projects and forums. Vivine Scarlett is Program Director/Founder of dance Immersion.
TRIBUTE runs 2 nights only, February 1 and 2, at Harbourfront Centre’s Fleck Dance Theatre. For tickets, call the Harbourfront Centre Box Office at 416-973-4000 or visit www.harbourfrontcentre.com/nextsteps/danceimmersion/.
