Convergence is a double bill featuring two new works: a solo by Becky Sawdon and a trio by Good Women Dance Collective’s Ainsley Hillyard. Sawdon’s solo is a commission from Constance Cooke of the Victoria School of Contemporary Dance. Hillyard’s trio for Alison Kause, Alida Nyquist-Schultz and Kate Stashko revolves around feelings of envy and acts of competition. Using one of Aesop’s fables as a starting point, the work questions how far any one person would go to succeed, especially at the expense of another. The company was in residency for three weeks at the Ottawa Dance Directive (ODD) with ODD Artistic Director Yvonne Coutts as outside eye. Hillyard also worked closely with an Edmonton sound designer and a poet in creation of this new work, which is her third major piece for the Good Women Dance Collective, of which she is a founding member. 

Performance Highlight in the November/December 2014 issue.
