Co-Commissioned by Fall For Dance North and Harbourfront Centre, Tessel is a national initiative of unity, led by Toronto’s Esie Mensah, features the stories and lived experiences of 14 pioneering Black artists.

A national initiative conceptualized by Dora-nominated choreographer and dancemaker Esie Mensah (Shades, A Revolution of Love), the film brings 14 Black dancemakers together in a vital conversation on what it means to be an artist in this moment. Premiering across the country by leading dance presenters on the one-year anniversary of Blackout Tuesday - a day when organizations worldwide publicly expressed their commitment towards institutional change to support the Black community - the film aims to amplify Black voices by providing a platform for these artists to share their truths.
