Dance, Stuff and Nonsense (1984/85)


Choreographed in sections by myself, Lola MacLaughlin and Barbara Bourget, this work was EDAM’s program for elementary school children and was a series of short (average: three minutes) vignettes. My sections included: The Slugs – contact type rolls and floor work for three dancers; The Chickens – funk flavoured strutting for four dancers; Definitions – a trio of flipper finned dancers responding in different ways to spoken words; Lyric – a solo dancer and flute player in conversation with one another. All music composed and performed live by Robert Rosen. This work was performed over sixty times in B.C. schools as well as at EXPO 86. Music by Robert J. Rosen
