Congratulations to our 2015-16 Creative Exchange Project recipients!
Congratulations to our 2015-16 Creative Exchange Project presenters: Springboard Performance, Neighbourhood Dance Works, and Yukon Arts Centre! Their unique, national project, Body of Water, brings together artists Ann Troake (St. John's), Wojciech Mochniej (Calgary), and Aimée Dawn Robinson (Whitehorse). The exchange will be shaped by the personality of each community's body of water: its history, politics, and qualitative experience. In each community, local artists will be engaged to work with the creative trio, promoting local engagement.
Mourning the loss of Michael Green
CanDance was greatly saddened to hear the shocking news of the tragic death of Michael Green. Co-founder of One Yellow Rabbit and Curator of the High Perfomance Rodeo Festival, Michael has been a leader in the Canadian arts community for over three decades, and a local theatre pioneer in Calgary, Alberta. He leaves behind a strong legacy of work that will continue to grow. Michael was one of five people killed in a multi-vehicle highway accident in Saskatchewan on the morning of February 10th. CanDance extends its condolences to Michael's loved ones, and to the staff and company of CanDance member organization One Yellow Rabbit.
