This Family Day, join choreographers Pia Bouman and Annie Feiler for a movement workshop that will guide participants through Carlos Bunga’s sprawling cardboard installation, A Sudden Beginning. Through a series of somatic prompts, participants will be invited to interact with the installation and reflect on themes of architecture and temporality.

Pia Bouman is a choreographer whose works reflect on the immediate — on things that must be shared to become part of collective memory. With many of her works appearing at dance festivals and schools throughout Toronto, Bouman performed Dissemination, a solo created for her by Alison Cummins, as part of the Older & Reckless series (curated by Claudia Moore) in 2012, and a self-choreographed piece, Erasing Margins, as part of the same series in 2018. She is the founder and Artistic Director of the Pia Bouman School for Ballet and Creative Movement, a not-for-profit organization with a unique and inclusive mandate. After 42 years in Parkdale, the school opened its doors on Sterling Road in September 2019.

Annie Feiler received her dance education at the Pia Bouman School for Ballet and Creative Movement and, later, in Windsor, Ontario, with Anne Marie Pilon Gerdun. After reconnecting with Bouman following her university studies, Feiler teaches in the school’s Young Children’s Program.
