Festival Program

Mainstage Program One

King’s Theatre

A gripping duet by one of today’s most eloquent choreographers. A playful battle between sound and movement. A brilliant absurdist production set to an original dancepunk score.

Mainstage Program Two

King’s Theatre

A master refining the language of tap. A personal telling of the joy, trauma, and memory that indigenous women carry. A virtuosic gender challenge. A celebration of Johnny Cash and working class tenacity.

Market Dances

A setting sun, a perfect setting and an eclectic mix of dance works performed by all of the MainStage artists. Many pieces have been created especially for this event. No entry fee and no reservations required. Just show up and enjoy!
