Speed Dating for (Non)Dancers

Get on the Performance Bus!

What is your relationship with dance? How do you understand and define yourself as a dancer or non-dancer? Led by Toronto-based choreographer Cara Spooner, this iteration of AGYU’s Performance Bus is about exploring your feelings, thoughts, and personal experiences with dance (without having to bust a move) while en route to the exhibition opening of Silence Please…. Speed Dating for (Non)Dancers engages with dance definitions and personal experiences, and where they intersect – simultaneously attempting to articulate embodied experiences on a moving bus.

The free Performance Bus departs OCADU (100 McCaul St.) on Wednesday, 8 April 2015, at 6 pm sharp and returns downtown at 9 pm.

Cara Spooner is a Toronto-based choreographer working in dance, performance art, and theatre. Her interest in movement and urbanism has led her to create performances in non-proscenium contexts as well as develop alternative mapping strategies. Select credits include Body Cartography (2010), 8037 (2011), Invitations/Into/Traces (2012) and Concord Floral (2014). She is a founding member of the Nomadic Curatorial Collective.
