The Movement Museum team has been busy running around to see dance shows, and as a result we have plenty of reviews for your listening pleasure this week. We start with Les mêmes yeux que toi by Anne Plamondon, which was presented by Agora this weekend. J.D. and Allison talk about their perspectives on the show, and we play a snippet of the sound track from the production.

Next Karen gives us a detailed review of Usually Beauty Fails by Frédérick Gravel / GAG presented by Danse Danse. We also talk about Frédérick Gravel’s work in general, and what kind of artist he is.
In the second half of the show we spoke on the phone with Angelique A'llure, a performer with Acme Burlesque. She is a singer and burlesque performer who recently traveled to Montréal all the way from Australia.

The show was also a Danse Danse production. You can see Allison’s written review of the piece on the Bloody Underrated website.
