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.
The Expanse Festival is upon us! Join us for the next four days as we record from the coat check of the ATB Financial Arts Barns. Day One: We chat with Festival Director Murray Utas, Lobbyist cat-wrangler (ie: Stage Manager) Julie Ferguson, the cast of Nancy’ McAlear’s The Contract, and visiting members of Washington DC’s The Dance Exchange.
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.
Expanse Movement Arts Festival is upon us! And IDGI is in the Arts Barns with Festival Producer Murray Utas to talk about 10 years of Expanse’s expanding and the feats to look forward to this weekend. We also rope theatre artist extraordinaire Nancy McAlear into our blanket tent to talk about Blue Eyes, Black Hair.
Expanse runs march 6-9 and we’ll be producing an episode everyday of the festival. There’s no better time to start talking about dance and we’d love to hear from you. Leave us a comment below or hit us up on Twitter @IDontGetItDance #BeMoved.
While Paul is away playing judge at Rapid Fire Theatre’s WildFire Festival, Fawnda tracks down improv Man-About-Town Vince Forcier to review L’Uni Theatre’s presentation of the marvellous, gravity-defying physical theatre show, LEO.
