Ashlea Watkin interview & reviews

Dear Montréal,

Ashlea Watkin is performing in two out of three of Nicolas Cantin’s Trois Romance pieces next month at Usine C.  We have a little chat with her about the project, and her career as a dance artist here in Montréal.

After the interview, Jenn rants about the White Wave Dance Festival in NYC. She just came back from New York after participating specifically in the Wave Rising Series, and shares her experience with us.

Allison and J.D. do a team review the still running Une idée sinon vraie… by Marc Boivin in collaboration with composer Ana Sokolović and the musicians of the Quatuor Bozzini.  The show is playing at Agora this weekend.

J.D. then puts Snakeskins by Benoit Lachambre to rest with a final, full review. I get the impression that he really liked this show.  It was presented at Usine C earlier in October, and since then, he hasn’t stopped talking about it!

To finish off this episode, Allison does a review of Tête à tête by Stéphane Gladyszewki.  The work was presented as a part of the Festival du nouveau cinéma last weekend.

Our show from OCTOBER 25th, 2012


Until next time,

J.D. Papillon, Jenn Doan and Allison Burns
