What is Garden Party dancing like in today’s COVID world? What can we learn from our knowledge of botany, indigenous plants, and how we eat food? How can we sustain growth and community?

Garden Party features a variety of amazing dancers from around the globe! From performances by Cree grassdancer/ b-boy Creeasian, to a Shinto shrine dance by improviser Hideo Arai in Tokyo, then leading us to the UK into an English garden featuring dancer Carolyn Deby of sirenscrossing. The event also features performances by Butoh dancer Yuko Kaseki performing from Berlin, and Bridget Jessome will be performing a piece by Gerry Morita. Dancers Tony Chong and Carol Prieur will bring a BBQ surprise from Montreal,  and Louise Moyes visits us from the Rock, while Wendy McNeill will be performing her accordion from Spain. Throughout the night Jennie Vegt will be live painting and will auction off her painting at the end of the evening. Our flamboyant host Piet Defraeye, whose “eye” for gardening, aesthetics, and failure, will be sure to assist us in COVID gardening performance landscapes.

Audiences are encouraged to watch and share from their own gardens in this interactive and exciting global performance online. Watch on a large TV or project it on your garage door for neighbours to see!
