As promised, we are continuing our month-long coverage of Montréal Complètement Cirque this week with another interview with a circus artist involved in the festival.
We chatted with Ursula Martinez, a guest from the UK company, La Soirée presenting a show of the same name. Ursula is originally from Spain, and is all at once a writer, an actress and a cabaret performer. She tells us about the inner workings of La Soirée and her “cult striptease act.” You can still catch the show until July 15th, and if you need further persuasion there is an excellent promo video available at the MCC site.
In the second half hour of the show we begin to tackle our pile of Montréal Fringe dance show reviews. Of course it is necessary to start off with a shout out to the shows some of us were involved in, Eeny Meeny Miny and Keep the car running. Once that is out of the way Allison reviews Le Projet Migration, Sora and Ethereal Tribal. J.D. joins in for a feisty discussion/review of Wolves and Selves, and the two of them finish off with a review Mangeons Pierrot. We can’t wait to finish the list next week!
Our show from JULY 5th, 2012
Allison Burns, Jenn Doan and J.D. Papillon
