Body Break 6.0
Part cabaret, part performance installation, part immersive environment, completely fun! Get your art on with this diverse and dissonant evening of inclusive and radical performances from Toronto’s finest.
Body Brake combines the energy of a rock concert in an evening of dance. It freely and irreverently mixes popular, classical, contemporary styles into a large performance party that holds the dancing body in a curious and politically charged spectrum. Where else can you see Aerial, Contemporary, Ballet, Post Contemporary, Burlesque, Tap, African, Indian, Street Dance, Bondage Performance Art, Parkour and more all in one evening?
Get your art on with this diverse and dissonant evening of inclusive and radical performances from Toronto’s finest for a great late night party!

WORKSHOPS in TORONTO
Contemporary Circus Arts Festival of Toronto presents a weekend workshop with Lisa
Research and Destroy , Evoke, Provoke, Suggest
In this workshop series we will look at creating abstract and non-linear narratives by exploring focus, motifs, character, range of motion and wrap awareness. We will examine repetition and research skills as a process to inform how movement constructs and deconstructs, and suggest meaning in a physical score.
Saturday May 28th 2pm-5pm $90
Sunday May 29th 2pm-5pm $90
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register
This is not a drop in workshop and pre registeration is required.
Location: Collective Space (221 Sterling Road, Unit 5 Toronto, Ontario)
