In the fall of 2019 we were thrilled to host dance artist, writer, and scholar (also the editor of our Program Magazine) Megan Andrews – to Fall for Dance North to write about and share her festival experiences through this blog. Relive your festival experience through her  beautiful poetic prose. Her journal is bound to ignite new ideas about dance!

Hello everyone!


I’m delighted to be attending Fall for Dance North again this year in an expanded role asFestival Writer through this “blog”. Full disclosure: I don’t consider myself a blogger per se, but we’ll see how it goes. You can find some other pieces of my writing in the Program Magazine: look for the bolded critical-poetic texts about each artist’s work, which I generated in response to preview videos of the dances themselves.


Here, I’m tracking my experience and observations throughout my time at the festival from Oct. 3 through Oct. 5. It’s certainly not a critical review but more a long form response. I’m exploring my approach as I go, allowing various possibilities to emerge. It’s pretty candid and I apologize in advance for any errors, which we will correct as quickly as possible.


I hope you enjoy. See you at the theatre!

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:
