I co-created and am performing in an upcoming show called Passages. It’s a collision of dance + film + live electro music. Some of you may have seen it in its infancy last year when musician Arthur Yeung, filmmaker Lesley Loksi Chan and I workshopped it during our HATCH residency at Harbourfront Centre. We’ve been busy re-tooling it with a great outside eye: Jacob Zimmer (Dancemakers, Small Wooden Shoe) and have since slimmed down our group,The Looking Sea Collective, to a mighty trio. Hope you can join us on this evocative ride. Here’s our nifty trailer and a flattering preview. Or keep tabs on us through The Looking Sea’s Facebook page. More »
GritLIT 2012 is just a week away. (March 28th to April 1st) We certainly hope to see you all there.
We have some amazing events happening this year. Saturday night’s reading revolves around books and music and the readers are Robert J. Wiersema (who will present his memoir about growing up to Bruce Springsteen’s music with the help of local musician Anne Marie Pavlov) and Sylvia Tyson. Yes…that Sylvia Tyson, of Ian and Sylvia, CBC radio, the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. She will be reading from her first novel and performing some of the songs it inspired. I promise you, this is the hottest $10 ticket in town. More »

Passages was originally developed during Toronto Harbourfront Centreís unique HATCH development and residency programme in 2011. More »
