FALL FOR DANCE NORTH
Where: Livestream Event
Fall for Dance North is an annual festival in Toronto that celebrates dance, this year they have taken their festival online.
Decidedly Jazz Danceworks is thrilled to be a part of Fall For Dance North Festival – The Flip Side, 2020 Signature Program, a livestream event presented in collaboration with Harbourfront Centre, featuring 6 world premieres.
DJD will be performing a premiere of a new work from Beautiful Noise titled Terra. Terra, the name of this tune composed for DJD by Brazilian bassist Rubim de Toledo, means earth in Portuguese. Driven and grounded movement creates the core of the work. At times the dancers seem to pull the rhythm out of the floor; at other times they push it in. They dance as though on a hot surface, or one that is taut and resilient. The dancers and musicians converse constantly, yet it’s not necessarily about what each is saying but about what hangs in the air between them.
