DanceWorks Moving Online presents Summer Reel, a compilation of short dance films that were created and performed by Canadian dance artists, beginning in January, 2020.

The Mississauga Arts Council is proud of Frog in Hand (, whose MAC film “River” (created through MAC’s Microgrant Programme) was chosen to be part of this dance on film festival with DanceWorks.

DanceWorks Curator, Mimi Beck, shares:

“These works emerged during different periods of the COVID-19 pandemic. Each captures the energetic body in a magical encounter with the film medium. Some remind us of the joy of live performance. Others reflect the mutating moods that have marked this unusual time of suspension, longing, stillness and solitude. I hope that you will be inspired by our Summer Reel”.
