Andrew Guilbert is a freelance journalist with a degree in journalism and English literature from Concordia University. In addition to being a news writer and The Dance Current’s intern-on-the-ground in Montréal, he’s contributed articles and photography to a number of other publications, including Geez and SiLO magazine.
Andrew is always hunting for good stories to tell. “Writing freelance isn’t so much an occupation as it is a lifestyle choice; you don’t get to clock out after 5pm since you never know where your next article will come from.” Hey, but what about dance? Says Andrew: “I think dance provides a direct conduit for saying things that aren’t easily expressed otherwise. It makes you feel connected to people in a very intimate, non-invasive way that you can’t find anywhere else.”
We’ll have more stories from Andrew in the fall, but we were happy to see his recent piece on Daddy Mojo — a Montréal workshop that has revived the lost art of crafting cigar-box guitars — in the summer issue of Maisonneuve.
