Day three at Expanse sees Anastasia Maywood, winner of the Good Women Dance New Work Award, visit the coat check. Then we catch up with Christine Frederick of Alberta Aboriginal Arts for a conversation about indigenous representation in arts, liberal sensitivities, and the complicated lines that art sometimes has to cross.
It’s the Year in Review episode! Paul and Fawnda share their thoughts on the year in dance, particularly the highlights. Among other things, they discuss the most affecting show of the season, the dancer with the best name, and the gal in town with dragon balls.
Fawnda and Paul stumble upon Lara Kramer‘s powerful and disturbing dance/theatre piece “Native Girl Syndrome“, a one-night only showing presented by Alberta Aboriginal Arts as part of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. They got it–they got it hard. Plus a round-up of dance events to look forward to throughout April in #yeg.
