Slippages – video of the performance

Back in Edmonton now, doing some post-performance and post-Thanksgiving work: the “get yer ducks in a row” for the next work to be done. Much to be thankful for, as always – being able to make work with talented collaborators, the opportunity to share ideas and approaches here and in person, the tremendous support I… Read More

Seeing Sound … and getting ready for Slippages

I’m in Vancouver now, and working on the last edits for the video work I am creating to accompany the world premiere of Slippages on October 5th.   I am delighted to share UBC Orchestra Director Jonathan Girard‘s take on what we are doing: “Deborah’s gorgeous score presents a thrilling challenge. How do we, as… 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

Some thoughts on leaving and coming back

I am preparing to fly West this afternoon, after a busy and very productive several months in various spots in Nova Scotia. A great residency with Scott Smallwood, and new work launched in Parrsboro, at Main & Station. The start of some new and exciting collaborations with Deborah Carruthers and with Susan Tooke.  Time to… Read More

And the Tide Turns

I’ve been hunkered down and quiet the last while, for a number of reasons. Travel – back west and then back east – for the AGM of Visual Arts Alberta – CARFAC, and for a memorial service in Calgary. Work – finishing up some experiments in cyanotype (!), and writing a grant report. Taking a… Read More
