S7E3: Body of Words with Nisha Patel & Sheri Somerville

We chat with Nisha Patel and Sheri Somerville about BODY OF WORDS, the collaborative performance piece that is being streamed online as part of SkirtsAfire Reimagined. We cover how their collaboration came about, what audiences can expect, and also how the pandemic has effected them, from performing poetry for an audience of one to how a ballet company safely rehearses in this wild new world.

Also discussed in this episode:
• Nisha’s open letter to Jason Kenney
SkirtsAFire, running March 4-14
Body of Words tickets
Ballet Edmonton
Writer in Residence (WiR) program at Strathcona Library

Season 4 Episode 18

It’s the big one, folks: The Children of God episode is here. We even saw it twice. Special guest Laura Raboud offers her musical expertise on the show that, by all popular accounts, has that really, really powerful ending. Like, really. For. Real. (No spoilers, either. Really.)

In other news, we also caught a night at the SkirtsAFire Festival, and brought Dan Shessel of Northern Nerdcast to see the quirky co-pro from Northern Light Theatre and L’UniThéâtre, Do This In Memory of Me (En Memoire de Moi). Between the church’s role in Canada’s residential schools to the story of a young girl who longs to be an altar boy, it’s the most Catholic week we’ve had in a while.
