Will Tuckett’s Pinocchio: A Canadian Talkie Ballet

By Dina Ginzburg

From plaid-clad, bearded lumberjacks, to backdrops evoking Group of Seven paintings, to a monstrous whale inhabiting the waters of a Nova Scotian fishing village, The National Ballet of Canada’s Pinocchio pays homage to the country hosting British choreographer Will Tuckett.

Pinocchio: Hybridized Ballet

By Sabrina Papas

If the audience of the opening night performance of Pinocchio was expecting a wholly classic, balletic rendition when the curtain rose, choreographer Will Tuckett defied those expectations.

Movement Memory

How we learn, retain and remember dance By Carolyn Hebert

How do we learn, retain and remember dance? What happens when a dancer forgets well-known choreography? How can we improve our recall for movement sequences? Carolyn Hebert spoke with diverse dance professionals about memory and the verbal cues, mental imagery and bodily experiences that shape their memory.
