On the Brink – Free Evening Performance

DateSaturday September 15th and Sunday September 16th
Time: 8:00-8:45 PM
Location: Amos Waites Park, 2445 Lake Shore Blvd West

On the Brink is a community-engaged artistic residency on the shore of Lake Ontario.  On the Brink fuses dance with sound and light at the water’s edge. Community workshops engage creatively with the site through land and water-inspired movement, improvisation with found sounds, and textile design.  In partnership with Great Lake Commons we investigate microorganisms and micro plastics found in the lakes & water.

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.
