Call for Dancers
Project: The Sun Will Always Rise From East to West
Description of Dance:
The main performance, located in a condo crater located east of Spadina between Front and the
Gardner, will take the form of a repeated, pedestrian movement sequence (conceptualized as a ‘ballet’).
For this piece, 3 large wooden/fabric 2D ‘shapes’, a disk (representing the sun – 3 dancers), and two
triangles (representing the two couples – 2 dancers each), perform a sequence which mimics both the
turmoil and pattern of the rising and falling of the sun. The dancers are in charge of moving the props
in a choreographed sequence. The performance will occur on the half-hour between 7pm and 7am on
the night of Toronto’s Nuit Blanche. For more info visit:
