Confederation Centre of the Arts in Charlottetown will host Street Fusion in August, its second free show presented in the Centre’s amphitheatre this summer that is intended to entertain, educate and promote intercultural understanding.
Street Fusion is written and choreographed by Dawn Ward and Joe Dames in association with Xclusiv Crew and Hurricanes Dance. It features Urban and Caribbean music and dance fused with traditional Island steps. It is a vibrant dance show celebrating how culture brings us together.
“Culture is learned in patterns; it is the values, behaviors, and connections shared by people,” says Ward. “Culture is also a way of coping with the world we live in. It resides in the hearts of everyone. It’s the way we see each other and appreciate our differences. It is also the way we find common ground. This show displays how distinct cultures can come together and create and celebrate each other.”
Performances of Street Fusion will take place on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 5:30 pm, and on Saturdays at noon from August 4–21.
