Derek Liddington’s Dandy Gangs dance tonight!

Dandy Gangs: a working-class love story, Derek Liddington

Join us tonight at 6:30 pm in Mississauga’s Celebration Square for Derek Liddington’s concluding performance of Dandy Gangs: a working-class love story, a dance-rock-opera that unfolds over various public sites in Mississauga. Knowing and unknowing audiences will see two opposing groups of dancers and musicians entangle in scenarios of territorial misunderstanding, conflict and tension through elaborate operatic song and dance choreography based on early Fluxus happenings, scenes from West Side Story and operatic interpretations of early ‘90s hip hop music.

A free shuttle bus to this performance departs for Celebration Square, 300 City Centre Drive, from the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen Street West, Toronto) at 5:00 pm. To reserve a seat, please call the Art Gallery of Mississauga at 905-896-5088.

For more information about the performance and other performance locations, please contact curator Elizabeth Underhill:
