Surfacing

A Sawdon Dance premiere By Dani Finch Surfacing

You know a performance has captured you when it encourages you to explore your own emotions. Surfacing, a collection of four new solo works by Rebecca Sawdon of Winnipeg’s Sawdon Dance, had me on an emotional roller coaster throughout the performance – and at different points I was both disturbed and elated.

 

A Retro Night Out 

By Kaija Pepper Ballet Rocks – From Bach to Pink Floyd Ballet Victoria

Ballet Victoria’s one-night-only appearance at North Vancouver’s Centennial Theatre drew a good crowd for a mixed bill mostly of premieres to music by Bach (the first half) and Pink Floyd (the second).  

 

Reading Dance 

By Robin J. Miller Nanaimo Infringing Dance Festival  Nanaimo Infringing Dance Festival 

Nanaimo, BC – about an hour-and-a-half’s drive north from Victoria on Vancouver Island – is not anybody’s idea of a chic, urban centre. It doesn’t even have a downtown Starbucks. What it does have is a contemporary dance festival, when other, much larger and ostensibly more dance-friendly cities have lost theirs.

By Robin J. Miller Three Flights Up Lynda Raino, Constance Cooke, Denise Lieutaghi

By Kaija Pepper Dancing on the Edge Festival 2003 Dancing on the Edge Festival

The fifteenth annual Dancing on the Edge, presented by the Firehall Arts Centre in Vancouver from July 3rd through 13th, was a remarkably mature edition.
