Now OpenNow Open - Toumine Exhibit

Canada’s radiant Nesta Williams and the dynamic Russian Sviatoslav Toumine met in the 1930s when dancing with the Ballets Russes. The couple married and began raising a family in the 1940s, settling in Nesta’s hometown of Ottawa where they established the Ottawa Classical Ballet and its school. Dance Collection Danse is the proud home to their extensive archival, costume and backdrop collections. After a 5-year collaboration with Ryerson Theatre School to hang and photograph these exceptional handpainted backdrops, DCD Gallery presents a new exhibit revealing some of the few remaining ballet backdrops in Canada from the 1950s.

ROCKING THE BOAT

Celebrating Queer Content in Canadian Concert Dance

 

Performance art, cabaret and burlesque are accepted arenas for expression of queer themes through movement; but what about the more conventional world of dance performance? Illustrating examples from the past 30 years, Rocking the Boat, curated by Pamela Grundy, celebrates overtly themed dances along with their trailblazing creators. Culled from public and private archives, this exhibition of video, photos, programs, publicity postcards and choreographic notes serves to illuminate an under-documented segment of Canadian dance.

The live exhibit Rocking the Boat: Celebrating Queer Content in Canadian Concert Dance was produced by Dance Collection Danse and on display at the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives (CLGA) in Toronto from November 22, 2013 – April 1, 2014.
