“Long’s Hill: I live(d) Here.” is a neighbourhood walking tour by Louise Moyes Docudance, told through those who live and have lived in the Long’s Hill area, in historic downtown St. John’s Newfoundland. In 2016, crisis struck. The Neighbourhood was divided as to what to do. Through dance, photographs, interviews and stories, Long’s Hill Walk reveals our hopes and fears, homes and businesses, our public spaces – and where they intersect. This work brings us face-to-face with the issues that shape a community and how dance, and the act of walking, can express the resilient nature of its people.
The performance features neighbourhood artists, Inuk throat singer and drummer Sophie Angnatok and African/Canadian singer/songwriter Winnie Churchill.
This is one of two live streams taking place as part of partnership between Neighbourhood Dance Works (NDW) and NAC Dance through #DanceForth. #DanceForth is the new NAC Dance livestream project. Most Thursday evenings, live performances will be presented by a variety of wonderful Canadian dance artists, both from the NAC Fourth Stage and from various centres across the country.
Choreographers and dancers with a terrific range of styles will be sharing with you directly through this series that embraces a new model to celebrate this rich and dynamic art form. Please tune in with us to discover the breadth and talent of Canada’s outstanding dance milieu.
This performance will be live streamed from the historic LSPU hall on November 19 at 7pm NT (3:30pm MT).
