Branching Out …

A good way to celebrate the Season and start toward a New Year: I am very happy to announce that a selection of my work  is now available for sale or rental through the Art Gallery of Alberta! I think this is a great program from the AGA – renting work is a very cost-effective… Read More

Just a very few more days …

… and Chaotic Bodies will close at Spazio Performativo. Amazing how fast the month has gone by – I’ve been too buried in the never-ending-cold-that-should-be-spring here to actually grasp that time is really passing quite quickly, and we are over 1/4 of the way through the year. It has been a great experience re-working this… Read More

Thinking about Bodies & Control

I am looking toward the Opening of Chaotic Bodies this Thursday at Mile Zero Dance – and not surprisingly, I am thinking a great deal about relationship, space, and how our bodies convey information. What we communicate with gesture and movement is so vital to our understanding – to meaning-making – but also to the way… Read More

I Took My Father for a Drive Today

A lovely piece on history, time, change – and sense of place. What place means when it is rendered in the first person, and intimately connected to the sights and sounds in a landscape? We are each responsible for the reality we inhabit, in all ways. Have a good weekend, everyone. My father was born… Read More

I wrote last month about a dance/choreography project I am involved in – RUCKUS – and wanted to offer an update on Anastasia’s progress for funding this phase of the work. The GoFundMe campaign has raised$1200 so far – which is exciting – HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that has supported this so far! That… Read More

Helping to Create a RUCKUS!

I had the pleasure earlier this fall of working with Anastasia Maywood, Krista Posyniak, and Alison Kause (and a group of amazing dancers!) on a new dance work-in-progress called RUCKUS. Anastasia has been given a residency by the Good Women Dance Collective in Edmonton to develop the work further, and has launched a GoFundMe Campaign to support the… Read More

On Galleries, and other difficult spaces

And excellent essay from Riva Symko, Writer in Residence at Latitude 53 in Edmonton. http://blog.latitude53.org/post/145013825132/does-art-require-four-white-walls-and-a-concretehttps://secure.assets.tumblr.com/post.js Rivals thoughts come at a particularly opportune moment, as I am heading to the CARFAC National conference and AGM in Montreal.   The problematic nature of the gallery-as-institution has direct implications for the ability of artists to have the opportunity… Read More

SubArctic – Amazing!

What an amazing SubArctic Improv last night! I am continually blown away by the diverse and powerful talent we have here in Edmonton. I’m also inspired and thrilled by our creative community’s generosity of spirit – the way people come together to make work, and give freely of themselves and their creativity. These people share… Read More
