The Magical Kingdom of Queens
by the Nina Haggerty Dance Collective
February 8 at 7pm
in Studio Theatre
Latecomers welcome!

The Magical Kingdom of Queens is a fantastical exploration of duality created and performed by the Nina Haggerty Dance Collective.  The Nina Haggerty Dance Collective, facilitated by Amber Borotsik and assisted by Cynthia Sentara, is a collective of artists with developmental disabilities who pursue both a dance and visual art practice at The Nina Haggerty Centre. For The Magical Kingdom of Queens the collective has been working with musicians Laura Raboud and Aaron Macri, exploring the various ways in which their dances, voices, stories and truths take space in the world.

Very Special Thanks to The Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts, to Karen and everyone a the The Alberta Avenue Community Centre and to Gerry Morita and Mile Zero Dance who began this  whole program.

Featuring: Yvette Prefontaine, Erin Lepine, Kelsey Hawkins, Jaymee Howarth, Sam Crier, Cynthia Sentara, and Amber Borotsik

Music Composition and Performance: Laura Raboud and Aaron Macri.

Narration: Brittany Leitheiser

Relaxed Performances
This performance is a Relaxed Performance. Relaxed performances are specifically altered to be sensitive to patrons who might benefit from a more relaxed environment, including those with a wide range of social, sensory, or educational needs.

Specifically, relaxed performances will:

  • welcome children of all ages
  • be understanding of patrons who make noise
  • be understanding of patrons who may need to stand, walk, or leave and re-enter the performance
  • provide pre-show information such as plot summary and when to expect loud noises
  • extreme special effects, such as strobe lights, are reduced or softened
  • auditorium lights only slightly dimmed
  • often accommodate an earlier start time

Patrons considering attending a relaxed performance should still consider show description, as the subject matter of some shows may not be suitable for all audiences.

This project is supported by the Pilot Fund for Gender Equality, a collaboration between Community Foundations of Canada and the Equality Fund, with support from the Government of Canada.

Ce projet est soutenu par le Fonds pilote pour l’égalité des sexes, une collaboration entre Fondations communautaires du Canada et le Fonds Égalité, avec l’appui du gouvernement du Canada.
