Hello dance enthusiasts of Montréal!
This week on the show Allison and Kati get carried away gushing about Crystal Pite, her company Kidd Pivot and her show that is currently running at Agora, The You Show. Seriously, just go see it.
Then we dedicate some time to current events in the dance world. Kati talks about some recent developments in the provincial budget as it relates to the dance industry. Then she tells us about some interesting stats concerning the cultural engagement of the public in different provinces. Bringing her attention still wider, she talks about the reception and reaction of Québec contemporary choreography in France. You can find links to the various articles she references bellow:
Le Monde – Danseurs québécois, à poil, au poil
Le Devoir - Distinct, le Québec?
RQD - Budget du Québec
Longeuil - Budget
Next Allison reviews Scary Tales & Broken Hearts, a show produced by Lynsey Billing and Entre-Deux, which was presented at MainLine Theater back in February.
Finally, Kati tells us about her incredible experience witnessing Hora choreographed by Ohad Naharin. This Danse Danse production was presented at Théâtre Maisonneuve, and performed by the Batsheva Dance Company earlier this month.
Our show from MARCH 22nd, 2012
Until next week!
Allison Burns and Kati Belanger
