The Holy Body Tattoo and Godspeed You! Black Emperor at PuSh By Brittany Duggan monumental

monumental by The Holy Body Tattoo was a major highlight at this year’s PuSh International Performing Arts Festival. It grapples with contemporary themes such as the anxiety of urban life – modern society’s persisting anxiety – and an increasing interaction and dependence with technology. And though not narrative, the social and political threads root the work, making it relevant and relatable.

Fast and Furious for a Reason  

By Kaija Pepper “The Vision Impure” Noam Gagnon, Co. Vision Selective

No matter how dark and driving the movement, something bright always shines through Noam Gagnon’s performance. It makes his dances cathartic to experience.  

 

Cuddly Animals Ease the Angst 

By Kaija Pepper “Smash Up” Dana Gingras, Animals of Distinction

Who is Dana Gingras without Noam Gagnon? That is the question fans of The Holy Body Tattoo – the wildly successful, hard-driving company the two have co-directed since 1993 – were eager to discover with “Smash Up”, Gingras’ breakaway production.  

Running Wild 

By Debbie Blaire Running Wild The Holy Body Tattoo  

“Running Wild” by choreographers Noam Gagnon and Dana Gingras was an evening of postmodern angst, featuring short dance performances created by Holy Body Tattoo artistic directors and dancers Dana Gingras and Noam Gagnon for themselves and dancers Day Helesic and Blair Neufeld.
