He recently premiered ‘Two x 30’ – a large-scale performance/sound work as part of ArtworxTO: Toronto’s Year of Public Art, and is currently working on two collaborative multidisciplinary performance projects. Michael has performed/collaborated with over 50 of Canada’s esteemed performance creators/companies, working internationally and performing across North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Currently, Michael serves in leadership, as Creative Director: Programming at Generator and as Artistic Associate at CanAsian Dance in Toronto, and as Associate Artistic Director for Festival of Dance Annapolis Royal, in Nova Scotia. Previously, Michael played a pivotal role in the growth and development of Fall for Dance North, serving as Executive Producer for nine years. He has also previously served as a Guest Curator and Producer for Dusk Dances, Older & Reckless, and Kaeja d’Dance’s ‘Porch View Dances’. In addition, he acts as a consultant with various arts organizations and as a mentor to many emerging artists/curators in the Tkaronto arts community.
