WELCOME TO ATLANTIC CANADA’S SUMMER CONTEMPORARY DANCE FESTIVAL!
FODAR 2016 Trailer.
FODAR 2017 will soon be in full sail
We can’t believe it’s our fourth year! Festival of Dance Annapolis Royal 2017 opens on Tuesday, August 15 and runs till Saturday, August 19. Set in the spectacular setting of Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley, the Festival is just across the bay from the site of the 1606 performance of Theatre of Neptune – reputed to be the first dramatic performance by Europeans in North America. And they did it in canoes!
While we can’t promise dancing in canoes, we can promise a spectacular sail past. It will follow just a couple of hours after our matinee performance on Wednesday, August 16, and it will take place almost outside the back door of King’s Theatre which, is FODAR’s home for the five-day Festival. It’s all part of the Canada 150 celebrations. FODAR will also be reflecting Canada’s proud history with a program that showcases the cultural diversity and rich dance history of our country.
This year, for the first time, the Festival opens Tuesday, with an award-winning documentary film chronicling the life and creative work of one of the world’s hottest choreographers. The following four days will feature works and performances you won’t want to miss. Check back in early June and discover what’s in store.
Meanwhile you can browse the site and look back and remember the spectacular FODAR 2016 or, see what you missed!
Tickets for FODAR 2017 go on sale on Monday, June 5.
