Caretakers – Fridays in July, 5-7 pm and 8-10 pm

In Collaboration with Clay and Paper Theatre. Led by Frog in Hand’s own Andrew Gaboury and Alice Cavanagh, ten clowns from the 2021 Summer Company will be let loose along the Waterfront Trail in Port Credit. Their red noses will provide a surprising, heart-warming addition to the beautiful views of Port Credit’s own Tall Oaks, St. Lawrence, and JJ Plaus Parks. Through the late afternoon (5pm-7pm) the clowns will chat with passersby, collecting joy. In the evening (8pm-10pm) they will celebrate with a parade of glowing puppets. Follow them on Instagram @froginhand to where the show will be taking place next (especially in the case of rain!)

Join the 2021 Frog in Hand Summer Company September 6th – 11th as they share two new Bollywood-inspired dance pieces as a part of MonsterARTity’s Bollywood Monster Mashup online festival, airing on their Facebook Live September 10th & 11th from 6-10:30pm. Choreographers Colleen Snell and Ankita Alemona join forces to create choreography that represents a glorious fusion of movement and cultural exchange. Colleen’s work is a fun and playful work inspired by the golden age of Bollywood (“Eena Meena Deeka”), while Ankita’s “Temple” is a reverent homage to the Indian martial art kalaripayattu.
