What is Dusk Dances?

Dusk Dances is an outdoor dance festival that brings dance to public parks. As dusk descends, a theatrical host leads the audience to an array of unique dance pieces that unfold in different areas of the park.

Choreographers are invited to create ten-minute pieces 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.

As producers, our mandate is to bring dance to the community by making it accessible
physically - our venue is a public space
financially - admission is pay what you can
artistically - our programming is diverse, for all tastes and ages

Our mandate as presenters is to give choreographers a unique opportunity to showcase their work in a non-traditional dance venue, in front of a large and mostly new audience.

Dusk Dances is a member of the Candance network and the Canadian Dance Assembly.
