We respectfully acknowledge the sacred land on which Fall for Dance North operates, and upon which our events and activities take place.  It has been a site of human activity for over 15,000 years and it is the traditional territory of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, the Anishinaabe, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit, in addition to other peoples, both named and unnamed.  Today, the meeting place of Tkaronto is still home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work in this community, and on this territory.

Fall for Dance North thanks the following funding partners for their ongoing support:

IN CONVERSATION...

ARTIST TALKS

For the team at Fall for Dance North, it’s very important that you have the opportunity to make a more meaningful connection with the artists we present. Our In Conversation… artist talk series deepens the discussion of dance, giving you direct access to the processes, voices and insights that inform the dance you’ll be seeing.

 

The conversations will be hosted by our partners at Turn Out Media and moderated by artists, writers and scholars from Toronto and beyond. You never know who might show up!

In Conversation...artist talks will take place an hour before each FFDN mainstage performance in the Sony Centre's Lower Lobby or in the Orchestra level at Ryerson Theatre.
