Possibilities of Dialogue – Workshop Performance
Co-created and performed by TOES FOR DANCE Co-Director David Norsworthy and NYC-based dance artist Marielis Garcia, Possibilities of Dialogue is an exchange of energy and awareness.
Inspired by the parallels between making a dance and having a conversation, the performance is an abstracted collaborative creative process; moments of listening, curiosity, disagreement and spontaneity unfold through movement and text. It is often playful, lively and physically virtuosic, sometimes uncomfortable, sometimes surprising and almost always responsive to and inclusive of the audience. Audience members are welcome to observe and interact through the invitations that are offered.
Possibilities of Dialogue is the second workshop performance part of NYA’s Evolve! Performing Arts Program.
Part of North York Arts’ Evolve! Program. Co-presented by TOES FOR DANCE and a DanceWorks CoWorks Series Event. Produced with the support of the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council.
