This Sunday the weekly program, Dance Diplomacy with Jonathan, continues:
Battery Dance TV shines its spotlight on Canada this Sunday! At 9 a.m. and 12 noon, our Dance Diplomacy interview brings together Canada’s Acting Consul General in New York, Khawar Nasim, with Toronto-based dance-maker Allen Kaeja. The wide-ranging conversation provides enlightening examples of the way that dance and the arts transcend geopolitical borders. Kaeja’s background as the child of a holocaust survivor is revealed as a source of personal inspiration and motivation for his creative and social impact work together with his creative and life partner Karen. Canada’s multiculturalism is embraced and forms the basis for cultural diplomacy espoused by Nasim.
The afternoon is Kaeja’s domain, contributing a rousing participatory class at 2 p.m. and a series of miniature duets at 4 p.m. that demonstrate their hallmark partnering style and innovative image-making during the enforced isolation of the pandemic.
