Dancing the Unspeakable - A Halloween event with Unify Toronto Dialogues

Please join us for a special happening that explores the unspeakable mysteries, our shadow sides that underpin a creative and searching life, sharing with others in movement and music, visual expression, and creative verbal and nonverbal dialogue.

How do we, as individuals, as communities, as human beings, be with the outrageousness of our futures?

How do we express the mysteries and the shadows, the inevitability of our own ultimate future?

How do we stay in action when death is inevitable? (personal death, death of ecosystems, decay of economic and other institutional structures that once held us secure)

Halloween has been a time for playing with otherwise unspeakable. A time for acknowledging fear and lack of control. A time of even celebrating and playing with Death’s inevitability. On Halloween, and the Day of the Dead that follows death can be both frightening and funny—that is, when we try to escape and control it.

Dance offers us an opportunity to “speak” to the unspeakable, to express that which is too much for us to handle with mere words. In dance we can play with and release our overwhelm, so that we might grow into our next best futures. Imagery and deep dialogue enable a listening for the unspeakable to present itself. We'll also hold brief sessions for dialogue and drawing.

Doors open at 6:00. We start at 6:30 sharp.

Guest Facilitator
Patricia Kambitsch explores and promotes tools for dialogue available through the visual arts, theatre, creative movement and dance. In her work she seeks to engage all of us: all our senses, imaginations, and creative powers with artistic tools. She currently enjoys clowning and participates in dance projects with the MomoButoh Dance Co. in Washington State.

Seven Fraser Ave is at the very end of the short Fraser Ave off King West, 2 blocks east of Dufferin. Free parking is normally available in front of 15 Fraser, or down the street. Walk through the parking lot, through the double doors past the lobby. Studio 13 is the last studio down a long hallway in 7 Fraser Avenue. We will be making Halloween preparations in the building, but don’t be afraid to go ALL the way down the hall!
