Pas de retardataires / No latecomers
This workshop is a gentle introduction to contemporary dance. It is designed for anyone who has been curious about the style, or movement in general. There is absolutely no dance experience required. Come feel what that brilliant body of yours can do! Participants should wear comfortable clothing that allows a full range of movement. Also, bring socks and prepare to dance without your shoes.
Mona Monaé has a hunger deep down inside and she wants satisfaction! Ricocheting between carnal desire, self discovery, loving and hating ourselves, Mona explores the imbalance of letting go and getting what we want in life. Seeking inner radiance amidst the hoarded remnants of messy one night stands and sweaty handshakes, Mona digs deep inside her crusty dank cellar for hidden riches to guide herself and the audience on an evolutionary journey towards transformation that would make Darwin’s head spin like he was starring in The Exorcist. Calling on self-help gurus and audience wisdom Mona explores how to shed light where the sun doesn’t shine - where the ancestral karma feeds on misery and guilt - by shaking her balloon butt at sexuality and spirituality , provoking our ideals and lighting up the world with her ferocious joy and defiant rejection of social expectations. A maniacal dance on a tightrope balanced between perversion and ecstasy, this wild ride will make you howl with pleasure!
Over 40 artists will come together to celebrate the diversity and individuality of the pit bull while providing a forum in which to educate and dispel the myths and hysteria that so often surrounds them. 50% of all art profits and 100% of all food* and drink profits will go directly to Sit With Me Shelter Dog Rescue - a volunteer run organization that saves, rehabilitates, and finds forever homes for death row dogs in Ontario and Quebec. We hope to give a voice to the voiceless and show the public how truly amazing our bully dogs are!
