Dusk Dances [HAMILTON CONSERVATORY FOR THE ARTS]

 

Dusk Dances: July 27 to July 30 Bayfront Park (Harbourfront Drive)

 

Dusk Dances is an outdoor dance festival that brings high quality contemporary and traditional dance to public parks. As dusk descends, a theatrical host leads the audience - which invariably includes children, dog walkers, cyclists and local residents - to eclectic dance pieces that unfold in different areas of the park. Choreographers from various backgrounds are invited to create a 10-minute dance piece inspired by the park’s natural environment. Audiences are invited on a pay-what-you-can basis to an innovative site-specific festival, which is not only an artistic event but a social and cultural one as well.

Now in its 23rd season, Dusk Dances draws thousands of audience members across Canada to witness majestic dance performances in outdoor settings. The mandate of Dusk Dances is to bring contemporary and traditional dance out of theatres and into communities by making performances physically, financially and artistically accessible to all.

After several successful years, the Hamilton Conservatory for the Arts Dance Theatre (HCADT) is proud to bring the acclaimed Dusk Dances festival back to our city from July 27 to July 30, adding an additional Sunday performance in response to audience feedback! Professional dancers from Hamilton and beyond will perform for hundreds of families as the sun sets at Bayfront Park.  Join us before the show at  6:00 pm for free dance workshops. The festival kicks off nightly at 7:00 pm with a musical performance by Riddim Riders (Reggae Music). From there, our incomparable host, Nina Gilmour, will lead you through the park on an unforgettable dance journey featuring a great program:

 

Bound, Choreographed by: Louis-Martin Charest
Performed by: Sylvie Bouchard and Brendan Wyatt
Are we not bound to those who have made an impression on our hearts? We have forged unspoken agreements that tie us together to our cores and keep us accountable. These are relations that may come and go but never leave us. Bound is part of a full-length work titled Histoire d’amour, produced by BoucharDanse, and directed by Marie-Josée Chartier. Histoire d’amour premiered through DanceWorks, at the Harbourfront Centre, in May 2012.

Rawrabide, Choreographed by: Ofilio Sinbadinho
Performed by: Zhenya Cerneacov, Sebastian Hirtenstein, Molly Johnson,Kathleen Legassick and Meredith Thompson
Rawrabide is inspired by this quote from a 1970s lower class black homosexual, nowconsidered Harlem renaissance, writer and civil rights activist: “I was not born to be defined by someone else, but by myself, and myself only.” Life is a game. Lots of rules, flocks of players, and sloppy referees... The dancers move in staccato and speak with the bravado from urban realness, social activism, and remix culture.

The place in between, Choreographed directed by: Myriam Allard and Hedi Graja (La Otra Orilla)
Performed by: Myriam Allard and Hedi Graja
An all-out choreographic exploration for three performers: a dancer, a singer and a bata de cola (a long skirt typical to flamenco that transforms the movement and gives rise to another body). La Otra Orilla thanks the Canada Council for the Arts, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and Conseil des arts de Montréal for their support.

Communal Solace, Choreographed by: Alysssa Nedich (To The Pointe Dance Project)
Performed by: Elizabeth Alexander, Cassandra Bowerman, Alexandria DiFazio, Sarah Dowhun and Abi Kim
In times of crisis, the world around us seems to stand still. Communal Solace is what allows us to find the strength to rebuild and carry on together. Five dancers flow seamlessly together creating the supportive sanctuary that one needs in a time of turmoil.

La gigue en souvenir. Choreographed by: Sylvie Bouchard with Mélissandre Tremblay-Bourassa for the last section
Performed by: Zhenya Cerneacov, Sebastian Hirtenstein, Molly Johnson, Kathleen Legassick, Meredith Thompson, and Brendan Wyatt
La gigue en souvenir makes the past come alive through a journey inspired by the energy, the complexity and the vigour of the traditional Québec gigue. Six dancers perform, along with students of Hamilton Conservatory for the Arts Dance Program, reinventing the folk tradition of the “gigue” in a contemporary fashion. This dance, created by Sylvie Bouchard, becomes a bridge between past and present and an ode to this most expressive of heritage. Join us for this rich and invigorating experience.
