Season 3 Episode 3

Coming to you straight from the moon! Paul and Fawnda dig into Cite Ballet‘s Enigma and the legendary Paul Taylor Dance Company‘s first-ever showing in Alberta, along with the help of some colourful balloons. Modern and dance helium: way to lighten the mood, right?

Season 3 Episode 2

There’s a bug in the tent! Join Paul and Fawnda as they launch into a review of BWDC’s presentation of Solitudes: SoloDaniel Léveillé‘s barely-clothed series of lone dancers in the “cross-fit of contemporary dance.”

Season 3 Episode 1

We’re back with a jam-packed episode to start Season 3. Paul and Fawnda regale with tales from Isabelle Van Grimde’s the Body in Question(s)2, co-presented by BWDC and the U of A Museums. We ponder the release of Canada Council’s recent Yes I Dance survey (and its accompanying Interactive Dance Wheel), and finally round up all the dance events (and dancey-sorta things) to look forward to in #yeg for start of the 2015-16 season.

Season 2 Episode 20

And now for something completely different: This week the IDGI team looks into the recent and sudden release of Citie Ballet‘s artistic directors, Francois and Laurence Chevennement. We talk to a number of people—including Citie’s Chair Trudy Callaghan, current Board member and former dancer Peter Akai, past board member Kathy Metzger-Corriveau, and former Citie Ballet dancer Danica Marlow—for perspectives on what this restructuring means for the company.
