The Refreshing Baroque 

By Kaija Pepper “Timber/Timbre” Joe Laughlin

It’s nice to be surprised by an evening of dance, though the more you see, of course, the less likely that is to happen. “Timber/Timbre”, by Joe Ink company’s Joe Laughlin, looked set to be a quiet trio, and there was little fanfare preceding its premiere midway through the Vancouver International Dance Festival.

Grace, it would appear, is a rich state of being. According to the traditional hymn, “Amazing Grace”, “ ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear/And grace my fears relieved&.” We say grace before a meal to show thankfulness. The ability to move gracefully is an important skill for a dancer.
