From Falling Piece, performed at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Diane Borsato, 2010

Critically acclaimed performer and artist DIANE BORSATO brings six Ottawa-based contemporary dancers, dressed as ordinary party guests, to infiltrate the opening night of Ontario Scene with a surprise performance. Falling Piece is an uncategorizable work that sits precariously between the real and the theatrical, and is a reprise of a work originally commissioned by the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2010.

Diane Borsato works in performance, intervention, video, installation, and photography. She has exhibited in galleries and museums across Canada and internationally, including the Vancouver Art Gallery, the National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec, the Art Gallery of York University, the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, and the Power Plant. She is currently Associate Professor of Studio Art at the University of Guelph.

Presented by AXENÉO7 in association with DORSALE Danse.
