This year is the first annual Juvenis festival presented by Blue Canoe Productions and I have been selected to direct and choreograph a dance show! The title of the performance, being shown at The Baby Grand Theater in May, is 'INITIALLY/UNCONDITIONALLY'. The work will be exploring relationships between strangers, friends and lovers, with an upbeat prologue indulging in the joy of laughter as medicine.
'INITIALLY/UNCONDITIONALLY' will start its adventure with auditions in the beginning of March with the aim of finding local movement artists to participate in the production. Along with the dancers I have recruited a local composer, musician and a young emerging photographer. This is an original choreography and collaboration filled with Kingstons finest, and although we have many great partners involved they simply cannot give us everything for free. So, I am looking elsewhere to find an awesome contribution to cover all costs, and make this show happen!
Since this is the first professional contemporary dance show conceived in Kingston I am very hopeful to see it evolve into an experimental world of dance, voice, visual media, and local accompaniment.
