LFDT presents Moriyama’s Continuum as part of Nuit Blanche, Toronto, 2019. This project invites you to become part of a collaborative creation in the soaring spaces of Toronto’s largest public library.
Architect Raymond Moriyama conceived of this library as a dignified place for the mind that would encourage self-help, allow people to explore, make their own connections, and gather in creativity. In the months leading up to Nuit Blanche, hundreds of people from across Toronto worked with the artists Marie-Helene Delorme – Sound Design, Wynn Holmes – Choreography, and Avery Plewes – Textile Design, at libraries across Toronto to craft the components of this project. All which were inspired by Moriyama’s original blueprints of the space. On the night of Nuit Blanche, the work was completed—by participants celebrating Moriyama’s iconic social space and Toronto’s public sphere.
Lo Fi Dance Theory would like to thank Mr. Raymond Moriyama, Canada Council for the Arts, TPL Staff, LFDT Board Members, Lucius Dechausay, CBC Arts, Julia Kidder, and Jaymes Moore.
