On Friday December 9th, please join us for a special night supporting not only this new work for Dancemakers, but also the continued work of Nova and I with our own companies.
There will be good music on the stereo, some snacks and wine generously provided by Casa Lapostolle and a chance to celebrate.
Tickets are $40 (there's a small service charge as well) and half goes to support Small Wooden Shoe and the work we do. We've got a lot going on* and your contribution would mean the world. And help pay some people for their amazing work.
Buy your ticket [here]
Here's a video from rehearsals: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNGLTgsUUCo&feature=youtu.be
and some thoughts from Jacob about the show: "There's only so much I can say about the seventies or the late sixties, even though they shaped me. I was very young or not born at all. But the images and music are the ones I grew up with. The images of a certain kind of rebellion, the sound of a certain kind of voice, the images and sounds of a journey from innocence to cynicism to... whatever comes after all of that has played out.
I decided to take up some of those images and sounds with Story Dance Radio at Dancemakers. A chance to work in a different art form seemed like it might be the right time. To work with an amazing company who have a capacity for image making in a form so tied in common perception to music. To tell a simple story of starting out, of passion, of being spent, of asking "what now?"
*(For example) - We just completed a workshop on Evan Webber's *Antigone* - watch a video about the project [here] - *Upper Toronto* is picking up steam. - read about in the Varsity [here] - sign up for Upper Toronto specific emails here. - The *3penny Chistmas Choir* returns December 29th at Buddies. - Leora Morris received an LMDA Dramaturgy driven grant] to work on "Small Wooden Shoe Reads Difficult Plays and Sings Simple Songs" - There's a Nuit Blanche 2012 project in the works. .phew.
