Who Tells and Cries Our Freedom?

By Collette Murray

A student-choreographed routine included dancers wearing slave and master outfits and an attempted tribal dance in dashikis and coloured “Afro” wigs to disco movements. This was April 2018, and the performance held in Barrie, Ontario, sparked a controversial social media reaction on cultural ethics.

Yes Manifesto (2018)

Linnea Swan interprets modern dance history, makes us laugh, makes us cry and makes us laugh-cry By Emma Doran

With Swan’s impeccable comedic timing, we’re in good hands on a journey through modern dance moments. Each performance is enacted by Swan as she struggles with anxiety, and each is interrupted by one of Yvonne Rainer’s tenets. Nijinsky? Swan asks through her performance (“No to spectacle”). Duncan? (“No to transformations and magic”). Chouinard? (“No to trash imagery”). Ugh, fine, karaoke? (“No to camp”). And so on …
