The week in dance left us stunned and slack-jawed. We caught Wen Wei Wang’s all-male Dialogue, juxtaposed with the incredible light-play in Hong Kong Exile’s ROOM 2048 (thanks to Laura Raboud for hopping in on that hot take!). Finally, Andrew and Fawnda took a pilgrimage to Banff to see the preview of Kidd Pivot’s newest full-length foray, Revisor.

Bonus note: For those who like books about dance history, the Nijinsky/Isadora Duncan riff at the top of the episode appears in The Chosen Maiden, a novel about Nijinsky’s younger sister, by Eva Stachniak.

Season 3 Episode 9

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.
