Fall for Dance North is drawing from as far afield as Cuba, South Africa and the Netherlands for its fourth annual festival but will also feature work from homegrown companies, including the National Ballet of Canada and Toronto’s Red Sky Performance.

The festival, taking place Oct. 2 to 6, is also adding a new venue: Ryerson Theatre, which will highlight the work of female artists.

“This year, new and returning audiences will be treated to a host of milestone firsts for the festival: a spectacular contribution from New York City Ballet choreographer Justin Peck; a world premiere commissioned by FFDN from Anne Plamondon and Emma Portner; and an endless array of evocative, engaging and exquisite artistic surprises,” artistic director Ilter Ibrahimof said in a news release.
