CDA and Atlantic Ballet’s IMPACTfest are proud to come together to celebrate dance in Petgotiag (Moncton, New Brunswick) and online from September 16 to 24.
CDA will be hosting their biennial Gathering with meaningful shared experiences of togetherness as the central impetus. Titled Holding Space, Holding Change, the Gathering is an occasion to identify and reflect on pertinent social, political and environmental movements of this dance generation. What has led us to this point now, and where do we want to go? We are gathering with a specific focus on sustainability, sharing stories from the past, finding new ways to listen and learn from each other in the present, and dreaming about what we are bringing into the future of Canadian dance.
Holding Space, Holding Change will occur in parallel with Atlantic Ballet’s IMPACTfest, a national gathering and celebration of groundbreaking dance works from across Canada. Over the course of 8 days, audiences are invited to experience innovative performances, workshops, film and artist talks offered in a variety of spaces throughout the community. IMPACTfest is curated to support artists who self-identify as equity-seeking. Individuals of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to engage, learn, and share with us.
Move, unite, learn, reflect.
