A Haunting Ballet That Does Not Leave the Mind

By Victoria Ellingham

As the audience filtered in to take their seats at the Four Seasons Centre on the evening of June 3rd, they were met with the sight of a lone chair, haphazardly left on its side in the middle of stage.

Toppling Taboos by Taking On Sacred Cows

Holy Cow(s)! by Hari Krishnan By Aparita Bhandari Holy Cow(s)!

Hari Krishnan has always challenged simplistic notions of tradition. His latest work, Holy Cow(s)!, attempts to break up what Krishnan calls “false binaries”, informed by news headlines around the election of Donald Trump and stereotypes that Krishnan has had to deal with all his life.

Delving into Familial Pasts

Jacinto by Carmen Romero By Kathleen Smith Jacinto Carmen Romero, produced by Compañia Carmen Romero

Flamenco artist Carmen Romero captures the memory and mystery surrounding her father’s sudden death in Jacinto. Dripping with sadness while exploring movement that is capable of vast expression and infinite consolation, Jacinto situates Romero as part of an experimental new wave that is sweeping flamenco internationally.
