Dancemakers MiniFest 2017
Explore 2 weeks of enticing and curious works & events from our mainstage & outreach programs.

When running an international contemporary dance centre, you deal with international contemporary dance artists – artists of high caliber with the schedules to show for it. What are the chances they’ll all be available in the same two-week period in June, then? A lot higher than we thought. And so this festival – the Dancemakers MiniFest, we’re calling it – is one of chance, circumstance, and quite a lot of luck. Under one umbrella for the first time since the launch of the Incubation Production House (IPH) in 2014, we’re presenting works by all four of Dancemakers’ diverse and challenging Resident Artists: Amanda Acorn, Antony Hamilton, Dana Michel and Andrea Spaziani, with education and outreach events for the entire dance community. And we are delighted to announce that two of these presentations are in partnership: a world premiere with Luminato and the Toronto premiere of an international sensation with Toronto Dance Theatre.
