AUDIBLE Outdoors is an extraction of the full-length work AUDIBLE, transformed for public park spaces. The performers meet for their end-of-day ritual on a grassy field, while audience members or passers-by witness a rough and playful "football" dance, close enough to see sweat fly and bones collide.
The company first had the opportunity to introduce this outdoor piece when they were approached to perform at a site-specific event called Dusk Dances. This outdoor dance festival takes place in public parks throughout Ontario and Canada. The event is pay-what-you-can, and audiences of all ages witness short contemporary and traditional dances at different sites throughout the parks. 605 Collective performed AUDIBLE Outdoors to audiences of close to one thousand for a week-long run in Toronto’s Withrow Park in 2012. In 2013, AUDIBLE Outdoors was peformed at a simliar event, Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival's "In the Park" Series.
