   The summer is heating up once again with the Fifth Annual Toronto Burlesque Festival as the Festival celebrates five years of presenting the most scintillating and seductive performances.
  Toronto itself has become a hub of talent in the burlesque world and this year the Toronto Burlesque Festival received a record number of amazing applications from both local and international performers so many that they were forced to add a show.
  This year's Festival will feature more than 120 unique performances over a record seven shows.

Porch View Dances

   Porch View Dances is 'real people, in real time in real spaces,' bringing together the everyday individual and the professional artist.
  Fifteen residents of Seaton Village in Toronto perform five unique new dance creations on the steps of their own homes. The dances reflect the unique intricacies of the performers and their everyday lives combined with the choreographer's aesthetic.
  Their stories are told through dance and brought out onto the front porches and courtyards of their homes, culminating in a celebratory, all-inclusive Flock Landing finale, where members of the audience are invited to become active participants.
  The works are choreographed by professional artists. The choreographers for Porch View Dances are Nova Bhattacharya (Ipsita Nova Dance Projects Artistic Director), Michael Caldwell (Pack of Wolves collective), Maxine Heppner (Across Oceans Artistic Director), Karen Kaeja (Kaeja d'Dance Co-artistic Director) and Allen Kaeja (Kaeja d'Dance Co-artistic Director).
  Porch View Dances begins at 84 London Street (one block north of Bloor St. W., west of Euclid Ave.) and continues through the neighbourhood, stopping at five different house porches in the Seaton Village neighbourhood.
  Audiences will be guided through the neighbourhood by a special host. Dancers Diana Rose (Flightworks Co-Artistic Director) and Tina Fushell (Ambitious Enterprises Co-Artistic Director) will accompany the neighbourhood walk with special dance vignettes they created for the event. And, as noted above, each performance ends in Vermont Square Park with an audience-inclusive Flock Landing finale.

Divergent Dances For Windows And Walls

    A choreographic installation for the unique setting of the Bata Shoe Museum's interior and exterior architecture, this work will combine dance and aerial arts and will include performances on the exterior walls of the Bata Shoe Museum.
  Divergent Dance For Windows And Walls looks at the risks of engagement; of relating to one another, of exposing vulnerabilities, of intimacy, and of trust. The work travels through the internal and external spaces of the Museum; telling stories on the roof and walls of the building, the street windows, the grand atrium staircase and in the external street spaces in front of the Museum.
  The audience will travel along with the performers, sometimes as spectators and sometimes as active participants in the creation of malleable environmental sculptures and choreography. The performance arises from the exquisite collision of the planned and the spontaneous.

July 24 - July 28   @ 8:30 PM    Bata Shoe Museum,  327 Bloor St. W.    |   Tickets: $15 - $30   Closing Night Gala $75 - $125    To order online,
