Conference in Hawaii; paper presented and projects in progress

It has been a while since we have had even a second to post.  This month we begin a 6 month sabbatical from the University of Calgary which allows us to focus sharply on our creative work.  We have just presented a paper here in Honolulu, with Adrianna Kabza on the development of Gdansk Dance  Theatre and  its place in  post-communist Poland.   This is the first step in a book we are co-authoring on this topic.  We met some incredibly interesting and wonderful people here in beautiful Hawaii!   We are working on our new series of short dance films developing the earlier work we did which was inspired by the poetry of Pablo Neruda.  In February, we begin a  collaborative project with Montreal based musician, Nils Brown, choreographing a new approach to the compositions of Witold Lutoslawski at the Banff Centre.  April and May see us in France and Poland, meeting again with our French colleague and collaborator, Christine Fricker!

Stay tuned for more…..
