Where do dancers go from there?

A bathtub, of course! With the inimitable Bathtub Bran as host, beloved Toronto dance artists talk about their lives and the impact of COVID-19 on their projects. What were they working on? How are they adapting? Hear about their creations and watch video excerpts. Irreverent and off-the-wall, this series of six interviews offers a frank and fun introduction to these artists. One tub, two artists (yes, clothed!), some suds – and the ubiquitous plexiglass COVID-safety shield – bring a dose of humour to the situation.

FFDN reboots this original 3-season web series started in 2014 by Toronto dance artist Bran Ramsey. All episodes are filmed and edited by Owen Deveney, on location in Toronto.
