Mayflies Performance Series with Seraka and The Duds

August 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Mayflies – finding magic in the everyday
Inspired by Al Pittman’s ‘Dance of the Mayflies’, each dance is at once here and gone again.
This year we are partnering with Provincial Historic Sites to offer pop-up performances featuring world-class musicians and movers on Commissariat House grounds in St. John’s and at Cupid’s Cove Plantation in Cupids.
Composed of professional belly dance artists, Seraka Dance Company performs their signature style of contemporary and fusion dance in St. John’s NL, under the artistic direction of Vanessa Matthews. Formed in 2010, the group is known for combining their precise technical skill, creativity in movement, and elegant costuming to present a unique experience of non-traditional dance.
The Duds
The Duds are Melanie O’Brien and Philip Goodridge, two artists from St. John’s, Newfoundland who have been working together for the past ten years. After touring Atlantic Canada in 2019 they released their debut album, “These Words I Can’t Forget” in March 2020. The Duds were subsequently nominated for two MusicNL awards: Bell Aliant Pop Artist of the Year and MDIIO Rising Star of the Year. Produced by award-winning producer/songwriter/filmmaker Ian Foster, the record combined The Duds’ folk-tinged roots sound with bright pop beats, resulting in something elevated, elemental, spicy-sweet and fully their own.
