The magnificent work of Margie Gillis is once again highlighted !
The Foundation is participating in the Dance: made in/ fait au Canada festival with the screening of When Dreaming Molly. Produced by the Margie Gillis Dance Foundation and Liberamae Performance, this work was also part of the programming of the 40th International Festival of Films on Art as part of La Nuit de la danse on March 18th at the Outremont Theatre.
When Dreaming Molly is a dance show, filmed a few days before the start of the pandemic with dancer Troy Ogilvie. This piece is the continuation of the solo Bloom, created and performed by Margie Gillis in 1989. Choreographed to James Joyce’s famous monologue in Ulysses, this innovative, raw, vulnerable piece illustrates the attempt to physically combine flow of consciousness and freedom of spirit. Created with the same curiosity and innovation as Joyce’s book, this adaptation pushes the boundaries of dance and playfully expands the boundaries of gender roles.
Dance: made in/ fait au Canada is a Toronto contemporary dance festival presenting the works of Canada’s most sought after dancers & choreographers. More about the Festival https://dancemadeincanada.ca/
