ABOUT THE SHOW
Choreographed by Kevin A. Ormsby
with concept development by Ronald A. Taylor, Arsenio Andrade and the artists
Re:Imaginings (time, place, movement -TPM) is rooted in the re-investigation of contemporary Caribbean dance language, like bpm (beats per minute); the work explores Caribbean rhythms, cultural practices and the influence they have had on the Canadian cultural landscape. Re:Imaginings (time, place, movement -TPM) unearths historical/cultural connections of the Caribbean in Canada.
Re:Imaginings TPM will be tied to our Black History month celebration. The work will have both a live component and a recorded live-streamed portion.
Run time is approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.
