CANADA DANCE FESTIVAL 2015

Dance where you least expect it

 

This year’s CDF celebrated the work of artists who are changing our idea of what dance can be, bringing work out into the world in places you would never think to look for it. In theatre, it’s called breaking down the fourth wall. In dance, we like to think of it more as opening up all the windows and doors.

This year’s festival was also a teaser for what you can expect to see at CDF 2016 – many of the performers and venues in CDF 2015 will be part of our festival next year. From June 4 to 11, 2016 you can look forward to new works from some of the 2015 performers, larger incarnations of what you saw this past June and new creators showcasing in the spaces you got to know this year.

Thank you for joining us at CDF 2015 and we look forward to seeing you again next year!
