Cafe Noisette is a spontaneous and energetic dance work inspired by the Jazz Age. Commissioned by the Mississauga Waterfront Festival to celebrate Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion’s year of birth: 1921, the work draws from Charleston and swing dances. When it premiered in 2013, Cafe Noisette took place in a working café, serving hot drinks and offering outdoor tables to the community during the annual Waterfront Festival ... outdoors at Memorial Park along the Credit River. Complete with period-themed costumes inspired by the film the Great Gatsby, and exciting but hilarious fights between gangsters and waiters, Cafe Noisette has became one of Frog in Hand's most popular productions, touring to the Guelph Nooner Series, the Hillside Inside Festival, Guelph Dance Festival, In the Park Series, Mississauga Culture Days, a performances at various seniors' centres in addition to several lively private and corporate events
