New Performing Arts Series at Evergreen Brick Works

Music and dance performances part of Evergreen’s Sunday Artisan Market – starts August 12

TORONTO, ONTARIO (August 7, 2018) – This Sunday, August 12, 2018, Evergreen launches a new Performing Arts Series at its Sunday Artisan Market at Evergreen Brick Works. The new program, supported by Cultural Arts Partner Bank of America Merrill Lynch, features three free music and dance performances, highlighting Toronto's diverse arts and culture landscape. The first performance Soudain, l’hiver dernier performed by Citadel + Compagnie kicks off the season, running twice at 11:00 a.m. and 1 2:30 p.m. Two musical and dance performances by local Toronto artists are scheduled for September and October 2018.

Performing Arts Series at the Sunday Artisan Market:

  • Dance performance by Citadel + Compagnie on August 12, 2018 - Soudain l’hiver is performed by Andrew McCormack and Daniel Gomez from Citadel + Compagnie, one of Canada’s premier dance companies led by artistic director Laurence Lemieux, with resident choreographer James Kudelka (nine-year artistic director of the National Ballet of Canada.) The dance explores the theme of not failing someone, embodying the notion that two solitudes border and protect each other. The 18-minute performance will run twice on Sunday, August 12, at 11:00am and 12:30pm.
  • Musical performance by Toronto Bluegrass group The Unseen Strangers at the Harvest Apple Celebration on September 23, 2018 Local band The Unseen Strangers, led by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Shier, has cultivated a musical identity shaped by good old-fashioned bluegrass, the limitless barrage of contemporary musical influences, and a curious sense of humor. The band performs at Evergreen’s first-ever Harvest Apple Festival.
  • Day of the Dead Latin music and dance performance on October 28, 2018 The annual festival celebrates Latin American culture with live music and traditional dances throughout the day on the main stage.

Evergreen’s Sunday Artisan Market runs every Sunday from May to November from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The weekly community event features a series of special celebrations, such as the Sunday Performing Arts Series, and a rotating roster of local makers offering products from jams, jellies and spreads to locally-made clothing and unique hand-made jewellery, wood and leather goods. 

The year-round Saturday Farmers Market and Sunday Artisan Market act as incubators for small businesses, allowing them the space to grow into successful, sustainable businesses that enhance the local economy – key ingredients in creating flourishing cities. Evergreen’s public markets also provide a place where people of all ages can come together to celebrate local farmers, producers, makers and artists. In addition to being the Cultural Arts Partner for the Performing Arts Series, Bank of America Merrill Lynch is the proud Title Sponsor for both the Saturday Farmers Market and Sunday Artisan Market.

“Bank of America Merrill Lynch has been serving the Canadian marketplace since 1947 with financial products and solutions to assist our clients in meeting their strategic objectives,” said Adam Howard, country president of Canada. “This partnership underscores our firm’s commitment to meaningfully contribute to arts and culture in communities in which we operate.”
