In Events on June 16, 2011 by danceumbrella

Feathers vs Fauna will premier at The Toronto Fringe Festival on Friday July 8 at 3:30 PM, all shows are at Theatre Passe Muraille, tickets are $10 at the door / $11 in advance . See below for a complete list of show times and directions to the theatre.
About the Show:

Featuring two new works from Toronto-based choreographers Eroca Nicols and Jasmine Graham, Feathers vs Fauna brings together land and air for a show that sounds good, looks good, and feels good too.

The Deer in Headlights Sideshow Slideshow is a solo work by Lady Janitor featuring: hand knitted epic family drama, feats of strength and concentration, silliness and dark comedy, power animals and dancing.

Aviary is a collaborative work performed by Jasmyn Fyffe and Emily Poirier and choreographed by Jasmyn Graham. Aviary invites the audience into a world filled with beauty, wonder and absurdity. As the piece unfolds, the performers transform into caged creatures trapped within the confines of the stage.

About the Artists:

Eroca Nicols
B-list neighborhood celeb, Lady Janitor is the Artistic Director and Producer of annual neighborhood event DIMBY! Dance In My BackYard, for which she received the ‘Fresh Air’ award from Paula Citron in her best of 2010. Eroca was also named winner of Dance Ontario’s 2010 Dance Innovation Award for her outstanding and original work.
In early 2009, Eroca co-founded the Toronto Dance Community Love-In, a networking and advanced experimental technique training provider for emerging artists, with fellow dancer Amanda Acorn. She is an outspoken community leader, dancer, choreographer and educator.
She began research for The Deer in Headlights Sideshow Slideshow with generous support from the Chalmers’ Family Fund in fall 2010 when she undertook a professional development project in London, UK, under the mentorship of German choreographer, Frauke Requardt.
In spring 2012 Eroca will curate a festival of baddass dance performance for Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre.

Jasmine Graham
Jasmine Graham is a dancer, choreographer, producer and director. In 2010 she co-founded The Creative Republic alongside fellow dancer Krista Posyniak. The Creative Republic creates opportunities for dance artists to create and perform work within the city of Toronto, alleviating the burden of self-producing. Their first show ‘THIS IS DANCE’ was an engaging and unique showcase that featured new work by six choreographers.
Jasmine also served as the Dance/Performance Coordinator for The Cambridge Arts Festival, a community run festival in her hometown.
Her choreography has been performed at Dance Matters and Series 808, and at various festivals and events.
