By Julye Huggins

Coming up in Toronto, Peggy Baker Dance Projects presents the sound and feel of it, January 20th through 29th. The show features performers Peggy Baker, Ric Brown, Benjamin Kamino, Sean Ling, Sahara Morimoto and Andrea Nann in three original works by Baker.The program includes a solo for Kamino accompanied by marimba virtuoso Beverley Johnston, as well as the double Dora award-winning solo Portal performed by Baker herself. The highlight of the evening is Piano/Quartet, a major new work set on Brown, Ling, Morimoto and Nann, performed to prepared piano music by John Cage (played by pianist Andrew Burashko). The work was further inspired by poems of Cage, which Baker discusses in this video interview with Martha Burns. Check out the video below to see a rehearsal of Piano/Quartet with further insights from Baker.Be sure to check out the Summer Annual 2008 issue of The Dance Current print magazine for an item on Peggy Baker.
