La 2e Porte à Gauche, Danse-Cité and Agora de la danse By Philip Szporer Pluton

At the heart of Pluton (French for Pluto) is something quite unique. If the former planet Pluto is now an allegorical term for being ruled out, these here are dance artists who are not okay with being forgotten about – they are speaking up.


Awards and Acknowledgements

Ginette Laurin was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada, Vancouver’s Goh Ballet students win at the 2015 Seoul International Ballet Competition in Korea, East Coast choreographer Randy Glynn selected as a finalist for the 2015 Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award, Vancouver’s The Dance Centre announces Jennifer Mascall as this year’s recipient for the Isadora Award for Excellence in Dance and Deanna Peters the recipient of the biennial Iris Garland Emerging Choreographer Award, and Edmonton’s Ainsley Hillyard accepts the 2015 Elizabeth Sterling Haynes Award for Outstanding Choreography.



O Vertigo By Philip Szporer Soif

Thirty years of existence in a dance company’s life is more than a notable marker; it’s an achievement to celebrate and a time to pause and reflect on how the company’s dances are resonating with younger generations. Ginette Laurin’s O Vertigo hit this milestone this year, and delivered the world premiere of Soif to an appreciative hometown crowd.


Ginette Laurin premieres new work, Soif, for O Vertigo’s thirtieth anniversary.
