The Revue Cinema, 400 Roncesvalles Avenue, Toronto.
Five Ways In (Mike Poltorak, UK, 2013) - A glimpse of the Freiburg Contact Improvisation Festival. This is the "rock star" of all jams. It sells out a few minutes after registration goes on line.
Greyscale (Karen Kaeja and Allen Kaeja, Canada, Premiere) - A woman slipping into a collision of grey, and ash and lead, immediate and in between.
Moments of Practice (Irene Sposetti, Sweden and Italy, 2011) - Intimate moments of practice in a home studio in Sweden.
Stumble (Allen Kaeja, Canada, Premiere) - A subtle stumble on route sends three individuals into a collision course of the unexpected.
Groundswell (Suzanne Liska, Kathleen Rea, Lee Walder, Canada, Premiere) - Edges of anger and sensuality saturate the dance.
Hasta Donde (Sharon Freedman, Spain, 2011) - Highly physical contact dance based choreography is a gem of intensity and nuances that will leave you speechless.
Sketchbook (Jeremy Finch, USA, 2011) - A personal look at a man's decision to pursue his passion for dance in all its joys and frustrations. The film beautifully combines dance, hand-drawn animation and thoughtful narrative.
