Something Between an Essay, a Pseudo-Story About Little Robo-Bugs and Another Excuse to Talk About Virtuosity

By Fabien Maltais-Bayda

Choreographer Antony Hamilton’s “Natural Orders” ends with a cluster of small light-sensitive mechanisms gliding about a section of the stage. While from a distance they appear mostly as points of luminescence, they look, up close, a bit like rubber toothbrush heads or many-legged critters.

A Cosmic Kind of Minimalism

Dreamwalker Dance Company’s Dual Light and a call to criticality By Molly Johnson

When introducing her new work, Andrea Nann is direct and affecting and serves to recast the stage as an “outer space” – a place between celestial bodies and also human ones. The work is part of DanceWorks 40th anniversary season.
