Decidedly Jazz Danceworks’ Drive-In Show Is an Innovative Pandemic Performance

There is something in the details closes tonight By Jenna Shummoogum

Decidedly Jazz Danceworks’ There is something in the details takes place through the windows of the company’s building. Music and voice-overs stream through a radio frequency that you can access in your car. Every vehicle is parked on an angle so that each cohort can have the best sightlines, and instead of applause, people honk their horns in appreciation. This is pandemic performance.

Konversations on Colour: A Report

By Collette Murray

Insatiable and Inspired

By Cindy Ansah

How would you illustrate the life of a so-called musical madman – one with a successful musical career that spanned more than three decades but who was plagued with bouts of mental illness? Decidedly Jazz Danceworks (DJD) did so with music, movement and a little madness.

Male Anger and Female Passion

By Emily Losier

Kimberly Cooper’s stab at provocative topics – domestic violence, sexualization and even toxic masculinity – recontextualizes and understands them in the context of current understandings of these issues.
