dance Immersion presents Queens Calling

Tickets: $25-$30

Queens Calling is a celebration of eight dynamic and diverse female choreographers from across Canada, America and the UK. This Black History Month Presentation features an inter-generational cast of female choreographers who continue to captivate and transport audiences with their precision and powerful work. The artistic vision behind Queens Calling was prompted by the abduction of 219 girls from a boarding school in Chibok, Nigeria.

Our goal is to celebrate women and bring positive energy to the challenges that still exist for women around the world. Eight acclaimed choreographers - Alesandra Seutin (UK), Charmaine Headley (Toronto), Ghislaine Doté (Montreal), Jasmyn Fyffe (Toronto), Michèle Moss (Calgary), Paulette Brockington (USA), Sharon Harvey (Toronto), Zab Maboungou (Montreal) - will grace the stage with works that include Contemporary African, Lindy Hop, Modern, Caribbean and more. Audiences will embark on an emotional and honest journey with vibrant expressions that celebrate the power of sisterhood, kinship, and womanhood.
