Recognized worldwide for its international festival which brings together street dance and related arts such as visual arts, music production and DJing, Jack of all Trades’ Battle / Street Dance is an artistic presentation that showcases the creativity of artists in a form commonly known as “battle”.
Eight Canadian dancers will perform, accompanied by three renowned DJs, in an atmosphere of expression, exchange and confrontation. Large screens will be placed in front of the dancers enabling audience members to react to the battle, just like when they attend in person. It is an opportunity to experience a usually underground dance event, in a format as close to the original event as possible.
This project is an initiative of Danse Danse (Montreal) in collaboration with DanceHouse (Vancouver), Harbourfront Centre (Toronto), National Arts Centre (Ottawa).
