American dancer Bobbi Jene Smith has spent 10 years as the star of famous Israeli dance company Batsheva. She finally makes the difficult and life-altering decision to uproot her life and career to move back to the US. Bobbi first came to Israel at a young age. She’s spent the past decade under the tutelage of renowned choreographer Ohad Naharin, who radically shaped her personal life and professional work. The life-changing decision to leave is made all the more difficult considering her budding relationship with fellow dancer, Or Schraiber.

Monica Gutierrez's moving film dismantles the "ComfortableTruth" that migrants owe Canada for the opportunity to be here.

4:00 pm: We Are Moving – Memories of Miss Moriarty at Turchin Center for the Visual Arts
Origin: Ireland–2016 Runtime: 1 hour 5 minutes. Director: Claire Dix
We Are Moving – Memories of Miss Moriarty is an intimate portrait of Joan Denise Moriarty, a visionary who overcame enormous odds by doggedly following her dream of bringing ballet to every corner of Ireland. A pioneer of early 20th century Irish dance, Joan Denise Moriarty dared to create a uniquely Irish form of ballet inspired by her love of nature and Irish folklore. Her life’s work has been largely over-looked since her death. Despite this, she has left behind a remarkable legacy of dancers and dance lovers who may never have found ballet without her influence. This is a celebration of this great woman - the artist, the dancer, and the woman - who was best known, loathed, and loved as Miss Moriarty.
