  • Laneway ART-ery Dances is an interactive digital installation that invites audiences to visit and experience two of downtown Toronto’s unique alleys in exciting new ways. Audiences will encounter large visual art imagery with QR codes that will prompt 3 short dance films plus one augmented reality (AR) experience. The films are triggered and experienced from your mobile device, making the performance personalized and safe to enjoy while adhering to COVID protocols. Shot in the laneways, the dance films feature 7 professional dancers and original music, creating a beautiful site specific experience. This installation will open in fall 2021 for ArtworxTO: Toronto's Year of Public Art 2021 – 2022.

    Laneway ART-ery Dances invites audiences to pause in the back alleys we usually hurry through, and to be present with the triggered imagery, each other and the space we can share. The usual bustle of people weaving their presence in Tkaronto/Toronto streets becomes separate from the calm laneway environment. This piece subverts the common perception of back alleys being deserted and dangerous by highlighting 7 diverse womyn performers in powerful and vulnerable dances. The performance has an expansive nature over its duration: from solos to ensembles and finally inviting the viewer into the dance; playing with the circles of connection we make from individual to neighbourhood to City. Think artifacts, historical and significant legends, garages with urban graffiti, intimate underpinnings, arteries of the body, the city, and compilations of life’s wisdoms.

    Featuring Aria Evans, Nickeshia Garrick, Karen Kaeja, Mio Sakamoto, Elke Schroeder, Katherine Semchuk, and Irma Villafuerte.

    Laneway ART-ery Dances will run from September 22, 2021 until November 2022.
