Multidisciplinary artist, Haley Dimeck (she/her), is a recent graduate of The School of Toronto Dance Theatre. She has performed in Fall For Dance North’s 72-Person Ball Passing, choreographed by Charles Moulton, and Peggy Baker’s intensive repertoire as part of the dance: made in canada/fait au canada Festival. She was also in a short film with Nicole Decsey Dance Projects, and a featured artist for “In the Studio with Guelph Dancers” video series.
Dimeck feels lucky to have grown from a variety of intensives, alongside her schooling, such as being a part of James O’Hara’s work at TransFormation Danse. She has also participated in Kenny Pearl’s Emerging Artist Intensives, which included new works by Robert Glumbek, Apolonia Velasquez, and a dance video by Hanna Kiel.
Dimeck presented her first full-length work, The Hidden Revealed, in August 2019, for Unwrap Theatre, which emerged out of the first piece she created as a post-secondary student. As 2020 co-recipient of The Winchester Prize, she choreographed, directed and edited a dance film titled, Resurface, in collaboration with The School of Toronto Dance Theatre and Summerworks Performance Festival. Her second dance film, produced by Unwrap Theatre, is to be released June of 2021.
As a passionate creator, Dimeck is interested in experimentation and embracing mistakes, while valuing physicality derived from task-based work and innate impulses.
