Talking and Dancing

A two-day intensive focusing on the ever evolving craft of working with movement, text/voice and the body in dance-theatre. Using experimental voice work, text, narrative and character physicalization, we will explore the possibilities of "talking and dancing". Great for actors who are not professional dancers and for dancers interested in text.

Porno Death Cult at High Performance Rodeo

 

An exploration of faith and faithlessness, life and death from dance-theatre guru Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg, Porno Death Cult is infused with her signature humour and pathos.

In a pilgrimage through a strange landscape of longing, a woman, a preacher and a god, come face to face with each other and the unanswerable questions that contort our collective perceptions.

Director Marcus Youssef (Neworld Theatre) lends his unique style and impeccable eye to this quirky, idiosyncratic fusion of text, dance, character, and prayer for something better. Forever thanks to Nigel Charnock

Premiered March 5-8, 2014 at The Firehall Arts Centre.
** Purchase your tickets for Porno Death Cult, Century Song, and Huff together and receive all three shows for $75 – a savings of $30. Available only by phone or in person at the Arts Commons Box Office - 403.294.9494

"how to be" at Dancing on the Edge - Edge 6

DOUBLE BILL with Deanna Peters.
NEW RAW

"how to be"

Tara Cheyenne Performance

Vancouver

Ready to get up close and personal? See dance from a new angle? “how to be” is an intimate and immersive performance that gathers audience members into a room with some of Vancouver’s most exciting dance-theatre artists, and takes us on a trip through our own questions, assumptions and delicious awkwardness about how we “should” be. Choreographer/theatre maker Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg presents an exciting blend of dance and theatre with her signature comic sensibilities. “how to be” is a close up look at how we think we “should” be, how we think others “should” be and the beautiful failure of it all. Created and choreographed by Tara Cheyenne Friedenberg in collaboration with Justine A. Chambers, Susan Elliott, Kate Franklin, Josh Martin, Bevin Poole, Kim Stevenson and Marcus Youssef. Performed by: Kate Franklin, Kim Stevenson, Josh Martin, Bevin Poole and Marcus Youssef.

NEW RAW

Deanna Peters
Vancouver

NEW RAW is a surreal dance party, an invitation, a confrontation, created and performed by Deanna Peters with performers Molly McDermott, Elissa Hanson and Alexa Mardon. Accompanied by Deanna’s record player and LPs from her collection, NEW RAW is “thrilling” and “eye-popping”, a wild ride for the performers and the audience. Everyone’s welcome at a FREE DP Dance Party after the show July 11: where dancers go public and the public dances.

Deanna Peters creates, performs, teaches and produces dance for the stage, the web, video, site-specific and beyond. Recent projects (over the past 6 months) include a dance in a bar in collaboration with a drummer, a public dance party inspired by prairie socials, a residency in a visual art gallery, an online series about female musicians, a stage work for 4 diverse performers aged 24–64, teaching hundreds of students in various contexts, obscure somatic training, communications design for several artists/orgs… It’s all dance: mutablesubject.ca
