About Dusk Danse

Incepted in 1993 by Festival Director Sylvie Bouchard, Dusk Dances is a curated, outdoor festival that brings dance to public parks. As dusk descends, a theatrical host leads the audience through eclectic dance pieces that unfold in different areas of a park. Dusk Dances utilizes the beauty and power of outdoor sites to present dance pieces that are magical and surprising.
