About the Film

Filmed throughout Toronto, Xtraordinary TO Dances: Moments In Reel Time captures one-minute of each Xtraordinary TO Dance Artist “in their element”, at the most meaningful and inspiring location for them in the city. The viewer will gain a different perspective of the city and a glimpse into what makes each XTOD Artist Xtraordinary.


In addition, the film also acts as a platform for the Solo Dance Xchange (SDX), in which the film footage will be the inspiration for future stage performances.

Broadcast Date TBA.

Kaeja d’Dance would like to acknowledge that we are situated upon traditional territories. Our artists, collaborators, staff and team are grateful to be creating art on this land that has been nurtured by recorded and unrecorded human activity for by thousands of years. We honour and respect the traditional lands and waterways of the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and the Métis Nation. We are in the 'Dish with One Spoon' territory - a treaty between these nations reflecting a commitment to share the territory and protect the land. We also recognize the enduring presence of diverse Indigenous peoples on this land.
