Dance Rx³: Re-emergence, Re-engagement, & Re-connection

A dance event in two parts: Re-emergence and Re-engagement in September 2021 and Re-connection in Winter 2022. This project was made possible via a collaboration between Dance Happens Here Haliburton (DH³), Throwdown Collective, and the Haliburton Sculpture Forest​.

From September 13-18 visitors will have a chance to see dance artists Brian Solomon, Noriko Yamamoto, Phylicia Browne-Charles, Madeline Friel and Throwdown Collective (Mairéad Filgate, Brodie Stevenson and Irvin Chow) as they spend a week in solo creative dance residency in the Haliburton Sculpture Forest. These selected artists have been invited to take an existing work or idea—perhaps halted by the pandemic—and to re-engage, re-configure, and adapt it to the outdoor environment, exploring it through a new lens.  The artists will be in the Sculpture Forest (weather permitting) from 12:00 to 4:00 each day. Community members are welcome to come and see their work in progress. There will be a community forum on Friday, September 17th for people to talk with the artists about their process.

In Winter of 2022 (date TBD) the dancers and choreographers will get reconvene for a live event do discuss their work, sit in for a Q&A and possibly perform their work live (depending on pandemic restrictions).
