Remembering Pierre-Paul Savoie, Founding Artistic Director of PPS Danse

Pierre-Paul Savoie was a pro. Nimble in mind and body, feisty and funny. I knew him initially (now more than 35 years ago) – when I was a budding dance writer and he was a student in Concordia University’s dance program.

The Chaos of Possibility

Kevin Jesuino explores how Queerness, liveness and failure might provide insight into reinvention, approximately one year after the onset of COVID-19 By Jillian Groening

Jesuino examines Queerness, liveness and failure in his work, Cruising at 30 Kilometers a Second and Attempting Not To Crash. The work asks what might emerge if we embrace failure and collapse.

Patricia Beatty, Co-Founder of Toronto Dance Theatre, Remembered as a ‘Warrior Queen’

Patricia Beatty was a multi-faceted artist: a choreographer, a dancer, a teacher, a poet. She was a true pioneer – one of the most influential figures of modern dance in Canada. She’s best known as co-founder of Toronto Dance Theatre, along with David Earle and Peter Randazzo. Her death at age 84 marked decades of choreography, teaching and writing that inspired thousands of young dancers.
