PORCH VIEW DANCES
An Urban Landscape Performance Initiative July 18- 22, 2012
Experience 15 residents of Seaton Village, Toronto perform five breathtaking new dance creations on the steps of their own homes. Brought to you by Kaeja d’Dance, these works are choreographed by professional artists Nova Bhattacharya, Michael Caldwell, Maxine Heppner, Karen Kaeja & Allen Kaeja. The dances reflect the unique intricacies of the performers and their everyday lives. Audiences will be guided through the neighbourhood to witness this collaborative dance event. Each day ends in Vermont Square Park with an audience-inclusive Flock Landing dance finale. Kaeja d’Dance’s work has been voted the “Best of Nuit Blanche” by the Toronto Star.
