The Danny Grossman Dance Company, founded by Danny Grossman (1942 – 2023), was one of Canada’s most beloved and influential modern dance companies, performing nationally and internationally between 1977 and 2008. The project explores the history of the company through the voices of dancers, directors, managers, stage managers, designers, and audience members. Audio recordings, text, photographs, and live memory sessions with company alumni offer an intimate portrait of this unique and extraordinary dance company. This exhibit represents a tiny sliver of the research gathered over the past several years that will culminate in a future publication.

Mairéad Filgate (Montreal/Toronto) had the privilege of performing many of Danny Grossman’s signature works as a member of the company from 2003-2008. She is a founding member of the collaborative trio Throwdown Collective, and in September 2022 premiered her first full-length, independent site-specific work on the grounds of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (Toronto). Mairéad has worked with a vast array of incredible artists, most recently: Sashar Zarif Dance Theatre, tiger princess dance projects, Roshanak Jaberi & Karen Kaeja, Chartier Danse, Sonia Gemmiti, Katie Ward & Compagnie, and Erin Flynn. She is a Dora Mavor Moore Award winning performer and choreographer, and a K.M. Hunter and Johanna Metcalf Performing Arts Prize nominee.
