Free Flow Update - January 2007
Welcome to a new year! May it be a happy and healthy one for everyone! I have survived what native Saskatchewanians are calling the Blizzard of our lifetime and am ready and raring to go in the new year.
SCES Workshop Tour: For 7 weeks I toured the province in a van full of artists to over 30 different schools in rural Saskatchewan. The program runs each fall brining a variety of professional artists and their workshops to students who may not often have the opportunity to experience the arts. Our tour offered Visual Arts – painting and pastels, Drama – improvisational skills, Music – Hip Hop poetry writing, Vocal play and of course creative dance. After a long and hard tour we successfully emerged on the other side of our contract tired and ready for the next big thing.
As luck would have it the next big thing for me was…
I began work at The Artists Play Centre the day after I arrived and continued except for a brief break over Christmas to visit my family until the night before I departed! It was a whirlwind of a trip but a wonderful one!
Who was involved?
The work was presented in an informal but entertaining showing at The Centre of Gravity on Gerrard St on Jan 4th. An intimate and supportive crowd was in attendance at the first Toronto showing of work from the Vaudeville project.
We would like to thank those of you who came out for the showing and who are supporting this project. A big thank you goes to Alan Page my gracious host while I was in Toronto for his sponsorship and donation and to Daf and Jim Summers for their contribution towards the project. And last but not least to the dancers who shared their talents with me in the development of the work!
