Regent Park Project

Breaking Ground [2009]

To celebrate the Regent Park revitalization, this CLC Beyond The Stage project engaged with community partners and residents to celebrate the integration of arts into urban planning.

Breaking Ground was a 2009 one-of-a-kind artistic event that unfolded all around: amidst the ongoing construction, emerging from the ground, merging with the changing landscape, the site came alive with dancing wonders, wild creatures, heavenly music, and rumbling machinery. A “dance” for back-hoes, created by Newfoundland filmmaker/choreographer Anne Troake stimulated an enchanting, transformative encounter with the unexpected, for visiting spectators and community residents alike.
