Frog in Hand Announces the Reimagination of Acclaimed 2019 Audience Favourite, Stories in the Woods

Frog in Hand, the blossoming Mississauga-based dance-theatre company, paves the way for post-pandemic live performance with the remount of their eerie, poetic, site-specific contemporary movement piece, Stories in the Woods.

Co-founder and Artistic Director Colleen Snell leads by example in a challenging time for artists. From integrating digital performances into their summer season, to creatively utilizing health and safety guidelines to create unique and unforgettable performance experiences, Frog in Hand has continued to provide not only it’s community with thought-provoking and relevant work, but local emerging artists with performance and employment opportunities.

“Our mission has always been to uncover, create and share new stories through dance in collaboration with passionate, emerging artists and through the collaborative efforts of our artists, Stories in the Woods elevates the possibilities for what socially-distanced art can give to the world”.

Artistic Director Colleen Snell

Stories in the Woods is the company’s second live performance of the season, and leads audiences in small groups through the spooky grounds of the Small Arms Inspection Building in Mississauga as they embark on a 60 minute journey inspired by science fiction and climate change (“cli-fi”).

With 9 chances to experience the wonder on August 5-7, 13 & 14, audiences can watch 2021 Frog in Hand Summer Company members as well as international guest artists as they are immersed in a cinematic world of sound and light, brought to life by Co-Founder Noelle Hamlyn’s breathtaking visual designs.

About Frog in Hand

Frog in Hand began with a cast of frogs performing circus tricks under the artistic direction of sisters Noelle Hamlyn and Colleen Snell, who were one and five years old at the time. From this whimsical debut springs our firm belief that art begins in humble places – including the mud and grass of our own backyards. Although we are now a diverse collective of dancers, choreographers, musicians, actors, spoken word poets, designers and visual artists, we are still inspired by where we find ourselves.

We are storytellers. We are inspired by local tales, people, and communities that now extend beyond our back yard to include professional training at The Banff Centre, LADMMI, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, London Contemporary Dance School (UK), Shiseikan Budojo (Tokyo) and Barefoot College (Tanzania). With dance at the forefront, we blend disciplines, treasuring the interaction between space, place and the possibilities of narrative. We seek to blur boundaries that separate art forms, artists, audiences and communities; we collaborate with others who have similar aspirations.
Frog in Hand Company members have trained with Gaga Movement (Israel), Jacob’s Pillow, Third Rail (NYC), Peggy Baker Dance Projects, and ProArteDanza. We are all committed to listening to stories and working in a community context. Since our first professional performance in 2012 we have produced 45+ original creations and 3 festivals sharing stories with audiences in parks, schools, gazebos, staircases, fountains, abandoned factories, elevators, galleries, street corners and theatres.
