Throwdown Collective

Founded in 2008, Toronto-based Throwdown Collective is a contemporary dance company that supports the collaborative creative pursuits of founders Zhenya Cerneacov, Mairéad Filgate and Brodie Stevenson. Creating both site-specific and stage work, the collective have created three site-specific commissions for Dusk Dances: One Couch (2009), Boxset (2011), and 1981FM (2013); all of which went on to tour with the festival and beyond, throughout Ontario, to Trois-Rivières, Quebec; & Vancouver, British Columbia.

Recently their work, Various Concert received the Dora Mavor Moore Award (2016) for Outstanding Choreography, and the Audience Choice Award at the dance: made in canada/fait au canada Festival (2015). The work also received Dora nominations for Outstanding Lighting Design/Arun Srinivasan, Outstanding Sound Design/Joshua van Tassel, and Outstanding Male Performance/Brodie Stevenson.

DanceWorks began in 1977 as a collective of independent dance artists. It has grown to become Toronto’s leading presenter of independent dance.
