Devon Anthony

Devon Anthony is a Black queer dance artist in Tkaronto/Toronto. He’s currently in a transitional period in which his creative practice is coming to know itself. He was trained predominantly in western dance traditions, but recently has begun training and performing in Black dance vocabularies. These experiences have allowed him to recognize the viability of a creative practice centring Black communities and exploring African expressive technologies – including fashion. He is passionate about making work that marries fashion with performance in order to animate archetypes of Black North American life.
