You’re invited to attend an afternoon of FREE dance/movement with the iconic dancer and choreographer Peggy Baker along with local performers. MOVE is a powerful community engagement project that explores the nature of both giving and receiving care. Ms Baker pilots 16 local performers (community members, dancers, actors, yoga practitioners) through 5 days and 17 hours of rehearsal towards a final 70 minute dance installation at the beautiful Art Gallery of Burlington. While working in pairs, the performers will use one-of-a-kind pitchers and bowls (contributed by local ceramic artists) to represent the basic duality of caregiving — the giving and receiving of water. The audience is encouraged to move around the art gallery and view the dance installation from all sides and differing perspectives.
This event is a partnership between two of Burlington’s flagship cultural institutions, The Burlington Performing Arts Centre and The Art Gallery of Burlington. Come and experience this FREE EVENT in the wonderful, cultural hub of downtown Burlington!
“MOVE calls up a multitude of ancient and timeless images; earth being plowed, the molding of clay, the kneading of bread, a midwife at work, a storm gathering, the swell of an ocean, the movement of a glacier, the heaving of a continent, the passing of time…” Peggy Baker, Dancer, Choreographer
