Public Energy

 

Blinded by Sound, Playing at Life

Bill Coleman and Gordon Monahan’s Dollhouse By Victoria Mohr-Blakeney Dollhouse

At first glance, the set of Dollhouse is its own cause for concern, a booby-trapped mess of wires, ladders, mousetraps and sound equipment. Coleman staggers through the chaos, knocking down tables and yanking wires, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake.

 

Calm Amid the Chaos

An Interview with Lara Kramer on her new work Tame By Victoria Mohr-Blakeney

The world premiere is in two days. Kramer listens carefully as her collaborators troubleshoot. Like her work, she is focussed, intuitive, and highly perceptive. A seasoned choreographer with five full-length works, a slew of residencies, and a company under her name, Kramer gracefully brings the discussion to a resolution. There is still more work to be done.

Dancing Diggers

Public Energy sponsors films Trash Dance and Pretty Big Dig at Peterborough’s ReFrame Film Festival January 26.

 

Gilding the Lily 

By Ursula Pflug, Bill James From the House of Mirth (avant premiere) James Kudelka, Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie

From the House of Mirth is a dance/opera inspired by Edith Wharton’s 1905 novel, choreographed by James Kudelka. The production is a true hybrid, where neither the dance nor the opera is intended to dominate. Writer Ursula Pflug responds to the Peterborough avant premiere performance here and then discusses the event with choreographer Bill James.
