Interviews with the choreographers of the dance shows featured at the Festival.
This episode was recorded live at The Marché des Possibles in Montreal. The guitarsmiths we tested are Chris McCarron, Jordey Tucker and Michael Felber. In addition to such bands as Stars, The Dears, Socalled and The Barr Brothers they are members of the elite group of musicians that form Urockaoke a live karaoke band that is as good as it is fun. We have been to many of their parties and let me tell you you could not do something better for your staff party/fundraiser/corporate bonding weekend retreat/wedding/barmitzvah/whatever. They are for hire, so you should probably hire them. They are the best wedding band on the market. Just sayin’. Ok, enough of the gushing, let’s get to the trivia!
The 2015 Winnipeg Fringe Festival features six dance shows. We start our coverage of the festival with an interview with Stephanie Lilley from the Edmonton based Viva Dance Company about her show, Dreamscape: our dreams told through dance. Then we are joined by Hilary Crist & Janelle Hacault who form the dance company Hacault and Crist Productions. They are presenting a double bill this year for which they both choreograph, called ESSENTIA. Pedro Colon describes the spanish dance company, Bolero Dance Theatre and their show LORCA. Then Philippe Jacques, an alumnus from Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet Aspirant Program, tells us about his show Text Me, by his company Pdance. Alexandra Elliott returns for another interview about her double bill in this year’s festival, At Your Own Risk. We finish the episode with another discussion about the progress of the for body and light tour.
We talked about their new EP, The Wharf, life on the road, the many people who fall madly in love with Corey, and Leah taught Paul how to play the autoharp; you can hear him giddy and happy excitement as he plays a song with the two of them!
