COMMUNITY: ReGeneration: Etobicoke Dances
NEXT WEEK we invite you to come dance with us at ReGeneration: Etobicoke Dances in the Historic Montgomery's Inn!
ReGeneration: Etobicoke Dances is a professional community dance performance that re-imagines the history of Montgomery's Inn through dance, art and and live music.
Every day residents of Etobicoke are paired with professional choreographers (Karen Kaeja -
featuring the brand new score played live by composer Chris Wilson, Lauren Cook, Jasmyn Fyffe, Allen Kaeja) to create new dance works in various locations throughout the Inn.
Performed by local seniors, adults and youth, ReGeneration also features: senior residents of Etobicoke, Kaeja company dancers, Etobicoke School of the Arts and The Music Studio students, as well as an art display with works by visual artists from Creative Village. Everyone is invited to participate in Karen's Flock Landing finale. Spearheaded by Allen, ReGeneration is a wonderful celebration of community and a moving reminder that dance and art is for everyone!
