Happyland by Winnipeg-based dancer, choreographer and teacher Jolene Bailie combines the talents of audio artist Susan Chafe, lighting designer Hugh Conacher and seven performers – Leelee Davis, Jillian Groening, Helene Le Moullec-Mancini, Ian Mozdzen, Krista Nicholson, Elise Page and Camila Schujman.
Bailie is a graduate of The School of Contemporary Dancers and began her performance career by commissioning solo works, which she then toured. She has danced with Trip Dance Company, Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers, Ruth Cansfield Dance, Kaeja d’Dance, and Bill Evans and The Bill Evans Dance Company. Bailie founded Gearshifting Performance Works in 2000 to support the growth of her solo repertoire. Today, the company creates work for theatre productions, tours, site specific projects, installation projects, video work and collaborations.
Happyland premieres April 15, 2016 at The Rachel Browne Theatre in Winnipeg.
