For all of us who went to the Black and White Show Fundraiser for Donald Dawson Project a year ago, we remember a brilliant performance of young artists from Ismailova Theatre of Dance who brought to the Junction's venue an innovative choreography of art and life instilled together in dance forms.
This year, we would like to invite you to the first full-length show of Ismailova Theatre of Dance. The genre is physical theatre, and it is going to be a fusion of theatre, dance (ranging from modern to rock-n-roll to traditional Eastern European dances) and Russian traditional singing.

Information about the show is on the blog:

WILD IN THE JUNCTION 2009: WTJHS Historical Mystery Tour asks the question: "How wild do you have to get to shut down your own bars?"
By David Wencer
Celebrate Toronto Heritage: Wild, Wild Junction I, Historical Mystery Tour Wild Wild Junction 2, Historical Mystery Tour Continues Historical society reopens, reenacts Junction cold case
Wild, Wild Junction Historical Mystery Tour takes place Oct. 24

"It's the West Toronto Junction's oldest cold case: the death of Joseph Curley.
It was Curley's suspicious death that led to the railway town's appointment with abstinence some 100-plus years ago. Curley's tale is just one of many that make up the Junction's colourful past. Accident or murder? That's what the second Wild, Wild Junction Historical Mystery Tour delves into."
