Objects of Desire

If you were fortunate enough to be in the Toronto area this past Sunday you may have heard of a little festival called the Day of Delight, organized by The Clay and Paper Theatre. It took place in Dufferin Grove Park from 2-5pm and it was truly something to see.

I was there! It was great!

At the festival, themed around love, courtship and desire, I was happy to present a new work of art to a new audience in a new format for me. This was a collaborative dance piece. Working with visual artist Emily Cook and dancer Eden Kaill Fenrick, we banded together and produced something unique and lovely, also entertaining I think. You can judge for yourself. There is now a video online for your viewing and linking pleasure. The audio was graciously provided by Sweet Mother Logic.
