PERFORMANCE: Dance is a Weapon
Saturday May 7, 4 pm - 5 pm, $10 PWYC
Beit Zatoun, 612 Markham Street

Choreographer Pam Johnson, with dancer and co-creator
Corrie Sakaluk, present a unique dance show called Dance Is A Weapon. It begins with a 'revolutionary TedTalk' delivered by Pam on the intertwined history of radical social and political movements of the 1930s and the development of contemporary dance. The second part is a dance solo, The Interview, based on Corrie's true experience of being "randomly selected" for a “voluntary” interview by the Canadian Security Intelligence Services (CSIS) in the course of her former job as a flight attendant with Air Canada. The Interview depicts a woman who has embraced a mission to make the world a better place, only to find herself - and possibly her family - under threat of recrimination, as civil liberties in Canada continue to be eliminated eroded with contentious legislation such as Bill C51.

Co-presented with Beit Zatoun.

Dance is a Weapon is part of the 31st annual Mayworks Festival of Working People and the Arts, set to take place from May 1 - 14, 2016 at various GTA locations. For more information, visit www.mayworks.ca.
