SOLO DANCE XCHANGE
About the Solo Dance Xchange
A serendipitous exchange of dance making, where one dancer's solo becomes another’s inspiration to create and perform.
Produced by Kaeja d'Dance as part of Xtraordinary TO Dances (XTOD), the Solo Dance Xchange (SDX) is a platform for 22 extraordinary Toronto dance artists to intimately expose and fertilize each other's creative process with essences of what makes them who they are. A multiplicity of generations and practices, these artists will perform a 3-minute stage solo inspired by another's original improvised XTOD film footage, shot in the summer of 2017. This gateway between dance artists and their practices is a unique eye into what makes each dancer move and respond.
A dream that Karen Kaeja has incubated for a decade, we invite you to join us for an ever-evolving evening of a collection of Xtraordinary solo dances, live music and a deeply engaging talk back. The original film, directed by Allen Kaeja, all shot in various locations within Toronto, will be screened before the show, each evening! Jenn Goodwin will moderate a performance-ending talkback each night.
Solo Dance Xchange is conceived by Karen Kaeja. Xtraordinary TO Dances was conceived and developed by Karen & Allen Kaeja.
