About the program:
Kevin A. Ormsby, along with KasheDance, will draw from Pan-Africanist based movement and host the ‘Kultcha Live Yah’ series at Citadel + Compagnie during the Festival. The series includes in-person and online workshops leading up to a final performance, which will feature a spectrum of dancers performing against a backdrop of digital artwork. The series is part of the organization’s 15th anniversary celebration that will incorporate dancers and the general public.
KasheDance is an Afro-Contemporary dance company with roots in Toronto and branches connecting it to the United States and the Caribbean. The company is unique in Canada in its use of the Critical Response Process to create, research and present dances that give voice to the realities of African Diasporic experiences. A creative practice based on traditional and contemporary diasporic languages (“KasheDantek”) has helped the company build its audience, connect to established artists while focusing on performance, as well as education and outreach opportunities. KasheDance invites everyone to dance, move and create in a shared experience. Kevin A. Ormsby is the Artistic Director of KasheDance, and will lead the Creatives in Residence project.
