Event description

Dancers: Gilbert Small & Stéphanie Cyr

Our house, called “Casa Om,” has always been a place of regeneration and creativity. This is our third consecutive season of creating this intimate, outdoor performance space in our backyard where artists have the chance to share their work at a grassroots level. As presenters we strive to give artists a platform where they have the freedom to experiment and share work that is deeply meaningful to them, and we feel passionate about creating an alternative and unique environment from which to share this art with our community.

This season, we are delighted to announce that we will again present two separate programs:

- The Dance Deck Quatre (August 5th & 6th)


- The Dance Deck Cinq (August 26th & 27th).

Both exciting and ambitious and each with a uniquely different lineup of established professional artists:
