  • Contact : For tickets Call the Hall at 753-4531 or rca.nf.ca
  • Details : Jo Leslie - Siren The piece celebrates the feminine (and all that entails metaphorically) and sends a warning about its denigration. How we treat women, each other and the planet are all inextricably linked. Performed by Robyn Breen. Jo Leslie - Affair of the Heart When Jacinte was 39 years old (and a mother of 2 small boys) she suffered a massive stroke. Consequently she has become aphasic (lost a great deal of her speech capacity) and her right arm and leg are numb. I met Jacinte in 2008 when I volunteered to direct her group’s rehearsals. Her vivacity, bravery and joy shone through anything we refer to as disability, and deeply moved me. Dance, for Jacinte, is life. I offered to create a solo so that she might return to the professional dance milieu and also, share a new perspective on the art form. Affair of the Heart (the title of the music) has been precisely that: with very few words but a great deal of passion and laughter, Jacinte’s remarkable story unfolded in dance. Enjoy Louise Moyes - Pants on Fire Jack wins the Princess's hand - by lying? A contemporary take on a tale from St. Mary's Bay, with the Princess giving her side of the story. What happens when the foundations of your relationship are built on slippery ground... A new Docudance work combining folk tale and contemporary writing with dance, both folk and contemporary.

  • Details : Katie Ward - infinity doughnut I see Infinity Doughnut as a blind and imaginative system of navigation exploring inanimate and also human phenomena. Together we’ll look at shapes, spaces and interconnectedness though simple-minded, volatile and robust dancing. In this speculative and naïve survey of our surroundings, bodies are squeezed and compressed, they also laugh, vibrate and drift. We will create a movement machine to show the mind’s fluctuations. This performance event invites performers and audience to surrender to change, flow and spontaneity. Family friendly!
