DISH DANCES WORKSHOP, a Talking Treaties movement education initiative
May 21 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
MAY 21 and 28, 2022
1:00 PM – 3:00 PM (2 hours)
Fort York National Historic Site, Toronto History Museums
250 Fort York Blvd
Workshop – in person
In Dish Dances Movement Workshop, Ange Loft (Kanien’kehá:ka) will present a project history and sample movement facilitation from DISH DANCES. Guided, low-stakes, individual movement activity will complement the presentation, building familiarity with the symbols, embodied gestures and land-based knowledge held in the Dish With One Spoon agreement. The resulting movement outcome will unfold across Historic Fort York’s Garrison Commons supported by Indigenous DISH DANCES performing team.
Ange Loft is lead artist of the Talking Treaties Collective, a multidisciplinary group of Indigenous and settler artists/researchers whose projects artfully share Indigenous history and awareness of the place now called Toronto. In May 2022, the collective will publish A Treaty Guide for Torontonians commissioned for the 2022 Toronto Biennial of Art.
Workshop begins at DISH DANCES video, outside Historic Fort York’s Visitor Centre.
Wheelchair access is available to Garrison Commons, where workshop outcomes will have audiences and performers moving around the public park space.
