Love, Voodoo and Yaado

Dear Montréal,

This week's episode of Movement Museum was pretty amazing if I may say so myself. Kati interviews Nora Chipaumire and Souleymane Badolo who are presenting three short works Love, Voodoo and Yaado at Monument National as a part of both the Tangente season, and as a part of Ascen/Danses (an event which celebrates contemporary dance/performance by artists of the African diaspora). Both our guest are well spoken, intelligent and passionate individuals, and expose us to some beautiful truths, and their personal feelings.

Near the end of our program Allison reviews the research project presented by Tangente last week, In Limbo. If you tuned in last Thursday you know that we interview the artistic director of the project, Lynda Gaudreau. The two choreographers presenting In Limbo were Marie Claire Forté and Julie Favreau.

Kati does a quick dance history on Katherine Dunham, and as promised here are some links to more information on her. She is an incredible woman, and the two minutes we could spare on her were just not enough!

Our show from FEBRUARY 23rd, 2012


Take care,

Allison Burns and Kati Belanger
