Interior Worlds 

By Pamela Anthony "I'm Standing Here Before You", "Still" Brian Webb, Tania Alvarado

It’s characteristic of Brian Webb to offer the complex contradictions of his work with extreme simplicity. This quality is particularly evident in his latest performance, “I’m standing here before you”, a modern and highly theatrical event that involves spoken text, extensive video art, five on-stage musicians and a very tall red ladder.

Usha Gupta’s “Asht Nayika” was the first performance in the 25th anniversary season presented by the Brian Webb Dance Company in Edmonton. This fusion exploration brought together kathak dance, Usha Gupta’s South Asian form, as well as flamenco and modern dance to explore the central theme translated as “Eight different states of women.”
