Paul and Fawnda start the new year with some serious theatre in the Tony-award winning, Pulitzer Prize-nominated The Humans at the Citadel. We also spent the holiday cold snap shuttered in with dance docs and podcasts. Join us as we drag our asses into 2018, kicking and spinning our heels.

Plus your “What To Watch For” list for 2018. Happy new year from all of use at IDGI, folks!

Season 4 Episode 7

Big news this week, folks: IDGI is now part of the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB! We saw (and ate) Justine Chambers’ Family Dinner, caught some clowning and dead cats in Over Her Dead Body, and topped off the week with Indigenous dancers Lunacee and Creeasian accompanying A Tribe Called Red‘s set at the Starlite Room. Ahhhhmen!

Season 4 Episode 6

We’re going down—way down—to Hadestown, folks. Destined for Broadway after the Citadel hosts its Canadian stage debut, Hadestown is a new musical based on the eponymous album by folk superstar Anais Mitchell, developed for stage by director Rachel Chavkin. We caught some dance, too. Thoughts on Good Women Dance Collective‘s annual showcase, Convergence, come in after (wait for it) Hadestown spoilers. Join us the road to hell—it’s warmer than YEG for sure.

Season 4 Episode 5

Paul and Fawnda take a delightful and debauched trip down the rabbit hole for the world premiere of Old Trout Puppet Workshop‘s Jabberwocky (fair warning: there be spoilers here). Plus: Joshua Beamish does a character scale in Lone Wolf, and we get caught up in the scenic pomp and #metoo themes of Alberta Ballet’s Dangerous Liaisons.

Season 4 Episode 4

Fawnda did all the things last week. She saw Shay Kuebler’s Radical System Art company create a lighting spectacle inTelemetry, and later found herself on the other side of the fourth wall as part of Mile Zero Dance‘s SubArctic Improv ensemble–performing mere inches away from Brian Webb. She tells Paul about all the joy and terror therein. Happy Halloween, everyone.

Season 4 Episode 3

Get ready to discuss what to do when you wake up drunk in a BBQ cover in your neighbour’s backyard as we discuss Toy Guns Dance Theatre’s remount of Fortuitous Endings: What To Do When You Wake Up Drunk In A BBQ Cover In Your Neighbour’s BackyardAlso, we check out Mile Zero Dance’s Remix where we find out how choreographers from Montreal and St. John’s, NL interpret the works of two local artists side-by-side.

 

Season 4 Episode 2

The YEG season is in full swing as the IDGI team dissects a variety of body language blitzes, from the showy embraces of Tango Fire to the confounding gestures of symphony conductors. With special guest, Laura “Boo” Raboud, who dishes on her experience of the Prairie Dance Circuit—from both sides of the stage.

 

Season 3 Episode 10

It’s a YEG miracle: Paul has never seen a Ukrainian dance show. So, we take him to Shumka’s latest production, KOBZAR. Incidentally, Fawnda also sees an intriguing collaboration with Good Women Dance Collective and ProCoro: Love/Fail.
