Paul and Fawnda take in a jam-packed weekend of dance performances, starting off with the double bill Retake, comprised of “Memory Folds” by Anastasia Maywood and Krista Posyniak‘s “When I Told You Everything I Lied and Drank Heavily.” And, opening its 30th season, Mile Zero Dance invited their far-flung friends Fine 5 Dance Theatre from Estonia to perform the award-winning triptych, Phases.
Season 2 is upon us! Paul and Fawnda spew a whirlwind round-up of the upcoming #yegdance season for the rest of 2014, and we offer a special interview that we had over summer with the ladies of Montreal’s weekly dance podcast Dirty Feet.
It’s not a horse show. Except it is a horse show. Paul and Fawnda return for a special summer episode to dish about Odysseo, the equine ballet currently taking up a fair amount of space in Edmonton’s east end.
It’s the Year in Review episode! Paul and Fawnda share their thoughts on the year in dance, particularly the highlights. Among other things, they discuss the most affecting show of the season, the dancer with the best name, and the gal in town with dragon balls.
Fawnda and Paul are back at it after moving the blanket fort across the city and snagging the Yeggie Award for Best in Arts & Culture, covering Body Traks by Tony Olivares Dance and Devi presented by the Thousand Faces Festival. Lots in store before the close of the season, so listen close for details about Mile Zero Dance‘s SHO-TEL and Dance at Nextfest.
Fawnda and Paul stumble upon Lara Kramer‘s powerful and disturbing dance/theatre piece “Native Girl Syndrome“, a one-night only showing presented by Alberta Aboriginal Arts as part of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. They got it–they got it hard. Plus a round-up of dance events to look forward to throughout April in #yeg.
