We’re excited to host another installment of Short&Sweet: Guelph Edition as part of Kazoo! Fest 2017! This celebrated dance event, invented by Wants&Needs Danse (Montréal), invites artists to have carte blanche to create whatever they want… as long as it is under 3 minutes. A timekeeper is present for the event and artists going over the allotted time frame will be immediately cut off!
Short&Sweet encourages artists to question exactly what can be accomplished within the time constraint. In a relaxed bar setting, Short&Sweet keeps the atmosphere light and gives the public a chance to see dance outside of the traditional theatre context. Audiences have embraced the format of Short&Sweet, appreciating the way the event offers an entertaining and unintimidating way for the public to sample a variety of contemporary dance work.
As each of the previous installments of Short&Sweet Guelph Edition have sold out rather quickly, we’re happy to host this year’s event at the lovely Palmer Hall, in the lower level of St. George’s Church beside Mitchell Hall, which will significantly increase our maximum capacity! Still, we recommend coming early!
Robert Abubo, Church, Martin Bélanger and Leanne Dyer, Lo Bill, Meredith Blackmore, Ruth Douthwright, Erin Flynn, Christina Kingsbury and Alisa McRonald, Jasmin McGraw, Kate Nankervis, Megan O’Donnell and Kelly Steadman, Bee Palomina, Lindsay Roe, Georgia Simms and Guelph Youth Dance Company!
Short&Sweet: Guelph Edition is curated by Katie Ewald and co-presented with Wants&Needs Danse (Montréal) and Guelph Dance.
