TINY DANCES FESTIVAL
Kinetic Studio hosted its first ever Tiny Dances Festival on May 1st, 2020 - an interactive online evening of video dance and movement. The e-festival emerged as a way to satifsy the needs of the creative community in Nova Scotia to come together, create, and celebrate dance during the COVID-19 pandemic. Over 100 people in Nova Scotia and around the world gathered over Zoom to support the dance community.
The evening featured original video works by local choreographers Lydia Zimmer, Jessica Lowe, Anastasia Wiebe, Rebecca Wolfe, Georgia Skinner, Lisa Phinney Langley, Jacinte Armstrong, Kathleen Doherty and Michèle Slattery, and included a live-streamed performance by LeeLee Oluwatoyosi Eko Davis. Guests also enjoyed an interactive "dance party" where everyone was encouraged to get up, and dance—a truly heartfelt moment for the entire community. The event was hosted by Kate MacDonald (Halifax), founder and co-creator of the Magic Project.
