Season 3 Episode 9

It’s a stacked (man-heavy) episode, folks: Alberta Ballet‘s Dynamic Directions showcased choreographies by Wen Wei Wang, Aszure Barton, and Yukichi Hattori; EdMetro Chorus teamed up with Tony Olivares Dance and the parkour antics of FlyFree Movement; and finally we caught Brian Webb trouncing around with CLINKER (a.k.a. Gary James Joynes) talkin’ ’bout death and stuff. Whew.

Season 3 Episode 6: Chinook Series

Back at Expanse—we mean Chinook—we rope in audience members Kristi Hansen, Jesse Gervais, and Tony Olivares to get their thoughts on two solo works: Brian 
Webb‘s Score on Memory and Joshua Wolchanksy’s Pro Patria Ad Exitum.

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 14

Paul and a 10-year-old boy declare their favourite show of the year (so far) while Fawnda explains just who Marie Chouinard is. That’s right: IDGI covers the relentless, sexy, and overall fascinating return of the Montreal dance savant’s intrepid Compagnie to #yeg after nearly 20 years.

Season 2 Episode 8

Paul and Fawnda take in a full weekend of dance: Good Women Dance Collective‘s Convergence with Rebecca Sawdon‘s  table-monster-beast, followed by Brian Webb Dance Company‘s Prairie Dance Circuit, featuring orgasms, live birth,vomiting and ejacu… other everyday bodily functions. Enjoy!

Season 2 Episode 4

We invite Trent Wilkie into the blanket fort to discuss Alberta Ballet‘s Don Quixote and the opening of BWDC‘s season with Toronto Dance Theatre‘s fascinating Eleven Accords. (Also we learn that Fawnda has no idea how to describe time signatures — especially in Steve Reich music.)
