📢 Kaeja d’Dance is seeking to commission three (3) site-specific, community-engaged choreographers for Porch View Dances 2024.
Porch View Dances (PVD), an outdoor dance festival in Seaton Village (Dupont and Bloor, Christie and Bathurst), activates porches as stages. Founded in 2012 by Artistic Director Karen Kaeja and developed with Allen Kaeja, PVD celebrates ‘real people dancing in real spaces.’ Dance can happen anywhere at any time for any moment in life. 2024 will be our 13th annual festival.
Choreographers invite community participants (non-pros) to perform the work, responding to the universal longing for belonging. PVD takes stories from home and brings them outside, culminating in a park with an audience-participatory Flock Landing dance celebration. This year’s festival is curated by PVD Artistic Producer Mayumi Lashbrook.

Kaeja d’Dance’s PVD is supported by the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council, Canada Council for the Arts, Rama Gaming House, RBC, and TD Bank, and others.
