Presented By Guelph Dance:
The On the Stage series presents a mixed program of contemporary dance from diverse and exciting artists from across Canada. Stage B features:
Choreographer: Karen Kaeja
Quadrupal Dora nominated CRAVE is poignant, romantic, whimsical and chaotic – a duet that mines intimacy while navigating loneliness, unsettledness and the hope that keeps us hanging on. Join us for an intimate slow dance prelude on stage with a partner, friend or stranger.
A Meditation on the End by Jo-Lee 2017
Choreographer: Pamela Tzeng
With death in arms, then at her feet, Jo-Lee muses on what has given her unconventionally conventional life meaning. In this bare bones duet, Tzeng leaps into fragmented memories of an imagined “other”, crafting a poetic and playful theatrical dance that embraces existential longing and mortality.
Mix Mix Dance Collective
Choreographed by Emily Law & Ashley Perez, with live music by DJ Classic Roots
“Follow Me” was created for the 2017 Games of La Francophonie in Abidjan, where they were selected to be part of Team Canada as part of the cultural component! Their motivation for competing in the games was to celebrate the excellence in artistry, athleticism, and expression Canada has to offer. The group performs with live music by DJ Classic Roots, who brings the sexy heartbeat of the boreal north to life with his unique brand of Electronica and pow wow techno.
