Ruth Cansfield’s Living Sculptures

By Emma Doran

Painting and sketching metaphors abound in reviews of Winnipeg choreographer Ruth Cansfield’s work. Her latest program, in the foyer of the Winnipeg Art Gallery, makes the connection to visual art even more explicit. Along with dance and live cello, visual art students will “perform” by sketching the dancers during the event.
