Spring, nature and movement

Spring has finally arrived in Toronto. After a mild winter, I'd been looking forwards to a long, lovely spring; but no. Winter decided to show up after all: in April!

Under the superficial layer of snow and frozen grass, life has been percolating with projects and performances. And everywhere around me, I have been buffeted by the swirl of what has been potential energy lying latent now become dynamic.

I'm currently in the midst of performances for a wonderful, new, experimental production by Coleman-Lemieux: "Against Nature", a chamber opera featuring the music of James Rolfe, libretto by Alex Poch-Goldin, and direction by James Kudelka. As-ever with Coleman-Lemieux, the production (let alone the richness of its content!) is exquisite.

Meanwhile, I've been preparing for my visit next week to the Vale of Glamorgan Festival in Wales. I have been working with movement and theatre coach, Kelly Arnsby, on two movement pieces originally choreographed for me by Gitanjali Kolanad. It has been an extraordinary process to integrate a third layer - of emotional contour - into these already complex pieces.  I look forwards to presenting them next week.

In advance of my visit to Wales, The Cusp Magazine, has written a feature article on my dance and music work
