Outdoor - Graffiti Alley
AUGUST 9, 7:00 PM
An exclusive tour of Toronto’s graffiti alley animated by dance.
Make Them Letters Dance pays homage to Graffiti, which paved the way for the ‘street art’ movement in Toronto. You’re invited on an exclusive tour of Graffiti Alley, led by Jessey “Phade” Pacho (Phade Creative), a rare inside perspective of Toronto Graffiti from a seasoned veteran. Melissa Hart (SaMel Tanz), will animate one of Phade’s own Graffiti pieces with a street dance performance, showing the close relationship between two Hip Hop elements.
Meeting point will be shared at least 24 hours in advance via email.
Melissa Hart (SaMel Tanz): Dancer & Choreographer; Jessey “Phade” Pacho (Phade Creative): Graffiti Artist; Samantha Schleese (SaMel Tanz): Outside Eye
