Emergency #17
PND's Annual Festival of New Dance and Performance April 2-4, 2009 Market Hall, 336 George St. N,

Peterborough's wildly popular and hotly anticipated festival showcasing Peterborough & area artists is set to bring the world fourteen courageous new works of dance, performance and film.

The range of talent is impressive; spanning university students to veteran dancers. This year's groaning board is piled high with solo contemporary dance works, multi media experiments, new interpretations of fairytale and myth, hip hop & street jazz, collaborative contact dance, tap dancing, clowning and martial arts. Many of these performances include live instrumentation and excellent use of the Market Hall's grand piano.

If this isn't enough, there are two bonus programs playing for one show each: a screening on Friday night at 10:30 of filmmaker Brian Mitolo's recently created dance shorts featuring the Peterborough Petes and the Peterborough Transit System, among others; and a matinee on Saturday at 2pm of theatrical storytelling from the Weaver Bird Collective, which has recently performed to sold out audiences at Trent's Nozhem Theatre.

As always, Emergency will surprise and delight audiences with an array of new works from Peterborough's talented and eclectic artistic community.
