Toronto Through My Lens

“Still Dancing”

Is it a whiskey still? A droplet of liquid? A man and woman dancing?

Myself, I’ll go with the idea of a whiskey still. The sculpture in question – Still Dancing – is by artist and creator Dennis Oppenheim. He describes Still Dancing as a “combination of sculpture, architecture and theatre”.

Installed in the Distillery District in 2009, the piece seems to be an acknowledgement of the Distillery’s brewing/distilling past (if you go with the interpretation of the piece as a whiskey still, that is).

The installation is quite large – the top of the copper apparatus reaches almost 40 feet in height.

    Another industrial site in Toronto that was transformed to a tourist attraction. The distillery district is a well thought out and perfect destination for a summer stroll or a winter Christmas fun day. The sculptures like these only make it more interesting.
