Saturdays until December 24

The Junction BIA is delighted to announce an exciting presentation of the award-winning dance company CORPUS, now in its 25th year! Every Saturday from September 3 to December 24, 2022, from 2 to 4 PM, CORPUS will feature a series of four FREE unique and engaging street performances at multiple locations along Dundas Street West that combine movement and theatrical imagery with surrealist humour.

Kicking off on Saturday, September 3 with Divine Interventions, followed by shows titled Nuit Blanche (October), Camping Royale (November) and The Alpine Merry Sheep Choir (December), each performance has been carefully developed to combine contemporary dance, physical theatre and comedy.

“Following an extensive European tour, we’re thrilled to celebrate our 25th anniversary at home in Toronto and animate city streets with artistic activities for people of all ages to enjoy,” said David Danzon, Artistic Director, CORPUS. “Our goal for each show is to challenge the role of the audience by offering a unique viewing experience and make the ordinary seem extraordinary.”

In partnership with the City of Toronto, the Government of Canada and FedDev Ontario, The Junction BIA has been granted The Main Street Innovation Fund, enabling the development of this immersive program. The Government of Canada funds this project through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.

Shows include:

Divine Interventions: This outdoor processional performance is a playful response to the challenges of 2020 and beyond. Three goddesses descend from the heavens and tour the streets of Toronto, having received word that the world is in dire need of their help.

Nuit Blanche: Follow three insomniacs into an afternoon of broken sleep and waking dreams. Nuit Blanche will take you on a fantastical journey through the bizarre and unfamiliar territory of the sleeping subconscious.

Camping Royale: A satire on colonialism and the privileged class, this performance features Queen Sophie-Charlotte and Queen Louise embarking on an absurd camping trip far away from court. Two worlds collide in this humorous and charming production that combines dance with object theatre. With references to well-known fairy-tales and hilarious audience interactions, Camping Royale is a signature work by CORPUS.

The Alpine Merry Sheep Choir: Back by popular demand. A funny, heart-warming project with our shepherd and three of his most talented sheep singing Christmas carols.
