Hillside Inside Presents Fab 5 Cabaret
Hillside Inside kicks off with a warm embrace of the four other festivals in Guelph and area that comprise the “Fab 5”: Eden Mills Writers’ Festival, the Guelph Jazz Festival, the Festival of Moving Media, and us - the Guelph Dance Festival!
The performances will include Tony Dekker (Hillside) of Great Lake Swimmers’ fame, Portal Dance Project (Dance), and the 9-member band, GUH (Jazz), who will perform a musical score to the Festival of Moving Media’s screening of Georges Méliès’ 1912 film, Conquest of the Pole (À la Conquête du Pôle). The Eden Mills Writers’ Festival offers Maestro Fresh Wes, the pioneering, Juno-award winning “godfather of rap”. A little like a Valentine’s Day chocolate box, the cabaret will allow the audience to sample the flavour of each festival, offering a sensual indulgence and opportunity to expand one’s artistic experiences.
