This is Our Place is a public dance residency and a call for artists to activate everyday spaces. With our core mission to support community driven art and provide accessible activities we understand the importance of shared environment and acknowledge we are visitors on this land. Our purpose is to connect and encourage urban embodiment —never to displace.
Exploring the importance of civic art, five emerging dance artists were assigned a portion of The Bentway, and over five rehearsal days created a site-responsive performance responding to our residency theme City Play. The culminating performance of This is Our Place was a free, immersive and participatory event for all!
