On the Ground

In the Political Theatre

By Kallee Lins

On Sept. 20, Canada went to the polls following a five-week snap election campaign. Despite the brevity and the ongoing pandemic, candidates poured themselves into appealing to voters in their communities. One of those candidates was Sarah Lochhead, the founder of Simcoe Contemporary Dancers, a dance instructor, researcher and administrator who has worked with a number of organizations including The Dance Current. She seized the opportunity to defend the value of artists holding political roles.
