Seaton Village once again becomes the stage for participants from all over the city! Join Maurycy as he guides audiences on a tour through the neighbourhood. Along the way, you’ll see dances performed by everyday people (families, friends, and even strangers!) on porches and lawns and vignettes danced by professionals in the most unexpected places. One of our families will grace us for a third year in a row with a special series highlighting their Indigenous roots. The tour will end in a participatory Flock Landing finale, a gentle and inclusive group movement experience.
HOW IT WORKS
The audience will gather at 92 LONDON ST. (right by the new Porch View Dances Lane!) at showtime where they will be greeted by our amazing tour guide, Maurycy, who will take them through the Seaton Village streets, stopping to enjoy dance pieces along the way!

A unique group of friends and strangers unite in their shared love of dance, art, and community. They are looking forward to strengthening existing friendships and making new ones.
Choreographed by Karen and Allen Kaeja
A mother/daughter duo are looking forward to a magical bonding experience and sharing their dance with the community; while their story is unique, the themes are universal and will resonate with all.
In addition, there will be pop-up vignettes choreographed by Mateo Galindo Torres and danced by professionals Caryn Chappell and Mio Sakamoto.
