Bouge D'ici 2012

Hello Montreal!

This week we focus on the Bouge D'ici Dance Festival, running from January 13th-21st, 2012 at MainLine Theater. The non-profit organization is concerned with giving emerging dance artists a venue to produce their work in a professional setting, and facilitating the creation of a diverse dance community in Montreal. During the festival, there are workshops, dance shows, a film night and a story telling event.

Kati and Allison talk with Amy Blackmore, the Artistic Director, Paul Aflalo, the Communications Director, and a member of the planning comity, Stephanie Robert who is telling a story at Confabulation: Just dance, and presenting a video in the Film Night, and Michele Slattery one of the choreographers for the Common Space Showcase. Check it out in more detail on Facebook.

Kati brings us a dance history focusing a different dance festival, the Festival International de Nouvelle Danse, which is unfortunately no longer in existence. If you are curious about what happened to it, Kati will satisfy that curiosity in the show this week.

In Layers

Welcome back!

Here is the first episode of Movement Museum for the year 2012! This week Allison and Karen talk to Jenn Doan and Taryn Javier who are in Calgary working on In Layers, a dance project described as raw, live and interactive. Jenn is head of production, and one of the dancers involved in the work, and Taryn, while also producing, is the choreographer and artistic director of the project.

Although the rehearsals and performances are occurring in Calgary, the creation process will be displayed online for curious dance enthusiasts, and the layman alike. They will be posting videos throughout the process, and interacting with fans, peers and each other through the blog. Stay tuned to to be a part of it all!

For dance history, Allison puts the spotlight on Ted Shawn, an important figure in the history of Modern Dance.

Our show from JANUARY 5th, 2012



Take care,

Allison Burns and Karen Fennell
