URBAN VESSEL: ON THE BRINK
Location: Amos Waites Park, 2445 Lake Shore Blvd West, Etobicoke
Dance, sound and light fuse in a site-based performance at the water’s edge.
On the Brink speaks to the powerful role of the Lake Ontario — as a place of encounter between cultures, as a border and barrier, and as a natural body which resists human containment and contamination. Composer and artistic director Juliet Palmer joins in collaboration with choreographer Aria Evans, percussionist Germaine Liu and designers Sonja Rainey and Kai Masaoka to gently probe the historical, political, social and ecological layers of the lake.
On the water, under the water, in the water: listening to the lake, what do we hear, what do we see?
Join us for a community workshop combining citizen science, movement, soundscape and textiles.
Presented by Arts in the Parks with funding from the Toronto Arts Council.
