Our bestie guests Laura Raboud and Colleen Feehan take a trip to Spazio Performativo for Sara Does A Solo, and then Fawnda does a solo of her own to see Shumka’s Nutcracker (thanks to Andrew for asking questions!). Happy holidays. Every. One.

We’ve been reminiscing a lot with the happenings in town lately, so this week we’re doing a special flashback to a couple of our favourite conversations on the annual holiday dance fuss, The Nutcracker. Remember that time in 2014 when Alberta Ballet invited us to do a walk-on in Act I? And in 2017 when we talked to a wee mouse and party kid? Sweet, sweet memories. Listen in.
Fawnda faces her fears and interviews two wonderful young performers from Alberta Ballet’s The Nutcracker (thanks Liam and Zara!). Plus, a rundown of festive activities happening throughout YEG in the coming weeks. Happy holidays, from the team at IDGI. Go see some shows!

Alberta Ballet solves the annual writer’s dilemma of finding unique ways to cover The Nutcracker by casting our hosts in the opening party scene. Paul sees the show for the first time from both sides of the stage, and Fawnda gets hooked into a big, gold dress—all in this very special holiday episode.
