From the website:
"Performed by Zhenya Cerneacov, Mairéad Filgate, Brodie Stevenson.
Throwdown Collective returns to Withrow Park with their third and most daring piece yet. This time the dynamic trio combines their signature high-paced and energetic physicality with a vaguely vintage car. Come see the trio re-invent the classic afternoon drive."

Moving onto the 3rd dance, we have the THE ALICE ODYSSEY (EXCERPT) with CHOREOGRAPHY BY MELANIE KLOETZEL (CALGARY) WITH CANADIAN CONTEMPORARY DANCE THEATRE

From the website
"Performed by Jessalyn Britton, Francesca Chudnoff, Alexandra Kersley, Jennifer Morse, Natasha Poon Woo, Miya Shaffer and Caileigh Suline The Alice Odyssey (an excerpt) is a dance theatre work that uses athletic feats,an outlandish script, and wild swings of sound to convey the inner turmoil of our favourite childhood stories. Scampering through playful partnering, heavily exaggerated facial gestures, and daring exploits in the setting of Withrow Park, The Alice Odyssey examines the strange, and often violent, maelstrom that lurks in children’s fantasy worlds.

The 4th dance is UNQUIET WINDS with CHOREOGRAPHY BY DENISE FUJIWARA and Performed by Sylvie Bouchard and Brendan Wyatt

From the website:
"Two long-time archrivals meet in the boxing ring for one final round. But this is no ordinary match. When the gloves come off, these two duke it out in a virtuosic dance battle. Performed, fittingly, by long-time dance partners Robert Glumbek and Yvonne Ng,this piece is non-stop action, high-energy contemporary dance.
