Artistic Director’s Message

Kimberley Cooper

Welcome! We are so happy to be part of One Yellow Rabbit’s excellent High Performance Rodeo again! Please also check out our co-presentation of Ephemeral Artifacts: Travis Knights from Feb 2–4. The Rodeo is always a fantastic spectacle, don’t miss it!

But tonight…

This is not a wedding show, but dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate life!

OLD – With this performance, I wanted to support Alberta artists, and to satisfy long-time fans of DJD who always ask: “When are you going to do Vicki’s red shoe piece again?” And so, the dance piece whose real name is Every Tap Show Needs a Soft Shoe, is back on the stage in all its glory!

BEHIND THE SCENES

Old/New/Borrowed/Blue features some favourites from the DJD repertoire, new works by DJD alumna Sarisa F. de Toledo and current DJD company member Sabrina Naz Comanescu, and a borrowed piece by contemporary dance artist Marie France Forcier. Go behind the scenes with Kimberley Cooper and the creation of Old/New/Borrowed/Blue.

 

Sarisa has Cuban and Jamaican heritage that have heavily influenced her movement and choreographic inspiration, that are evident in her new piece for Old/New/Borrowed/Blue.
