Local art patrons are invited to join regional choreographers of contemporary dance to explore themes of identity, relationship and connection in a casual, intimate setting

Form CDT is proud to announce launch of the second season and fourth edition of PROSPECTS: an evening of drinks, dance and discussion. PROSPECTS brings together local enthusiasts of art and dance with choreographers from the local, regional and international dance community to cultivate creative community dialogue.

Audience members will witness new and in-progress contemporary dance works whose themes will provide the foundation for the evening's dialogue, “RELATIONSHIP AND CONNECTION: How do we relate to what is around us?”. Each work will be followed by a Q&A discussion led by each choreographer, giving the audience an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback and further examine the ideas presented. There will also be an opportunity to provide written feedback.

“This interactive, informal event brings together community members to share ideas, to learn about contemporary dance and to bring life to the local arts in Burlington,” said Lisa Emmons, Artistic Director, Form CDT. “We are particularly excited for this edition of Prospects where we'll be announcing the company's new name and artistic direction. Our company has evolved and grown, and we look forward to bringing our community with us along this journey.”

Works will be presented by featured guest choreographers:

Yugali Bharote, Mikaela Demers, Rachel Facchini, Jennifer Harrison and Shannon Kitchings
