VIDEO: DanceWorks Moving Online presents Summer Reel

Summer Reel is only available to watch until September 8, 2021.

DanceWorks Moving Online presents Summer Reel, a compilation of short dance films that were created and performed by Canadian dance artists, beginning in January, 2020.

DanceWorks Curator, Mimi Beck, shares:

“These works emerged during different periods of the COVID-19 pandemic. Each captures the energetic body in a magical encounter with the film medium. Some remind us of the joy of live performance. Others reflect the mutating moods that have marked this unusual time of suspension, longing, stillness and solitude. I hope that you will be inspired by our Summer Reel”.

    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.
