About the Event


MAY 8:

Screening: "At Heart", a Jamii docu-film

For this beautiful evening, diving into the roots of our community through the lens of local residents, join director Ayelen Liberona for this screening session. "At Heart, Citizens of The Esplanade" was created in 2018, and involved in its creation process more than 150 Esplanadians of all ages (people who live, work, study and play in The Esplanade neighbourhood – downtown Toronto). Together, they embarked, with a team of artists, on a co-creative process to produce this moving participatory community-engaged docu-film. "At Heart, Citizens of The Esplanade" shines a light on our neighbourhood, the St Lawrence, and invites people to reflect on the values that drive community development and city planning. Join us for a screening followed by a talk with the director.

Docu-film duration: 28min

May 15:

Dance Performance: "No Return"

On May 15th, we have a very special "Wednesday Watching" evening together! Stepping away from the traditional screening night, this Wednesday, we have a dance performance and discussion! Jamii is excited to present "No Return", a performance created and performed by dance artist Michael Mortley and spoken word artist Jael Jones.

"No Return" is an interpretation of return. A return to self, a return to the place my body called home not just where the heart is. A place that holds no judgment for who you are and what you chose to be. No Return... no way back, just forward, through all adversity forward.

The piece was first premiered at Dusk Dances in 2022, and we are excited to bring it to the Jamii community! Come ready to sit back, watch, and enjoy an artist talk after the performance.

Stay tuned!
