We catch Bangalore’s Attakkalari Dance Company as part of the BWDC’s season, and the final full day of Play The Fool—with particular interest in their conversation on consent in interactive performance. News bits include the recent Senate appointments and RAM’s big opening day.

It’s a peanut butter and jam-slammed episode of #yegarts news, Sterlings chatter, classical Kathak in KHOJ, and a very special drop-in by Trent Wilkie from The Undad to talk about Concrete Theatre‘s Sprouts Festival and theatre for kidlets. Also Fawnda attempts to describe seeing Angels in America in one measly minute. Listen to her fail!
It’s a very special episode, with a very special guest’s hot take on Andrew Tay’s You Can’t Buy it, But I’ll Sell it to You Anyway SUCKA (hint, it’s Brian Webb!). Plus we cover Sheldon Elter’s Metis Mutt, running at Theatre Network through March 4th, and Paul’s first-ever Citie Ballet show.
I Don’t Get It is a proud member of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB.
Paul and Fawnda take a delightful and debauched trip down the rabbit hole for the world premiere of Old Trout Puppet Workshop‘s Jabberwocky (fair warning: there be spoilers here). Plus: Joshua Beamish does a character scale in Lone Wolf, and we get caught up in the scenic pomp and #metoo themes of Alberta Ballet’s Dangerous Liaisons.
The YEG season is in full swing as the IDGI team dissects a variety of body language blitzes, from the showy embraces of Tango Fire to the confounding gestures of symphony conductors. With special guest, Laura “Boo” Raboud, who dishes on her experience of the Prairie Dance Circuit—from both sides of the stage.
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.
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.
