Danah Rosales and Sara Porter

DanceWorks is delighted to co-produce a double-bill of queer work in partnership with Fall for Dance North and the Citadel: Ross Centre for Dance in Toronto.
 
This double-bill features Toronto-based artists Danah Rosales and Sara Porter in a juxtaposition of works that finds shared ground in theatricality, spectacle and Queer identity – directed for film and livestream by William Yong.
Rosales, a.k.a. Maldita Siriano, Mother of the Kiki House of Siriano’s Toronto Chapter, presents The Grand March of the House of Siriano, a new contemporary group work structured as an extravagant mini house ball where dance, beauty and fashion intersect.
 
Porter presents a new filmed version of her acclaimed solo Getting to know your Fruit, woven from movement, memoir and wit. The performance features her trademark exuberance, a wardrobe of costumes, intimate prose and – yes – actual pieces of fruit.
 
DATE: October, 7, 2021 at 7 PM EDT

THANK YOU TO OUR FUNDERS, SPONSORS & DONORS

Donors are the heart of our season.

We acknowledge the Toronto/Tkaronto as One Dish One Spoon Indigenous territory. We honour the ancestral caretakers of this land: the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat and most recently the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation who have a Treaty relationship with Canada. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work in their community, on this territory. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and future.
