The Magpie Collection: A Dance Festival
The Magpie Collection: A Dance Festival is a bright and attractive gathering of dances that will inspire, delight, and move audiences with the language of dance which crosses many boundaries.
For July 16-24th, MZD will host a series of dance workshops, and then three days of live performances. 3 days will include 2 performance events each day, forming a double bill which will give audiences a vast blast of dance in one sitting. The dance community has developed beyond ballet and contemporary dance in recent years, to include drag, hip hop, Afro-cuban dance styles, tap, butoh, Indigenous dance, ballroom and social dance styles, and numerous cultural dances from all over the world. Alone, these styles are often hard to discover, but together we anticipate a strong impact on Edmonton’s cultural scene. Artist talkbacks throughout will encourage developing dialogue.
