Sunday June 17: Megan English

Bio: Megan English
Megan English is a graduate of York University's Dance Program. She has had the pleasure of performing and presenting work at many Toronto venues and series including: Vivid, Up Darling, TIDF (formerly fFIDA), Small Potatoes, Series 808 and A.W.O.L's Whole Exhibition. Megan trained as a Dance Movement Therapist in London, England. At that time, she performed as a member of the dance theatre company Zephyr in Zanussi at London's Resolutions!, the Chelsey Theatre and the Chichester Fringe. Most recently, she appeared in a video for the Toronto based band, The Great Lake Swimmers. Megan enjoys teaching dance and later this year will be joining the National Ballet for their fall tour as a dance educator.

Megan says of this performance:

The ideas that percolated during the making of this solo are...going through life half awake or waking up after being asleep for a very long time. Coping with the imposition of structure versus the joy of creating your own. It is also a tribute to the beasts within us that we fight with only to discover they mean well.
