There’ll be no complaining over this Homewerk

Kitimat Concert Association readies for its next show.

The Kitimat Concert Association presents the second show in its 2012-2013 season on Oct. 27 at 8:00 p.m. at the Mount Elizabeth Theatre.  Mascall Dance will perform Nail to House and Homewerk, a special double feature contemporary dance work.

Before intermission they invite you to tour behind the scenes through the choreographer’s eye in Nail to House.   Artistic Director Jennifer Mascall reflects on the 18 years of work that led to making a dance called Homewerk.  This is a humorous and poetic description of a particular thread of ideas as seen and studied by the artist: from house to home, and from walls to the invisible space between people.  Inspiration, creation and perspiration abound.

Nail to House is an incredible window into contemporary dance providing insight into narrative, movement and the creation of a dance through the lens of Homewerk’s own creation process. For those who are just starting to look at dance, the narrative/performance offers the vocabulary and tools for discussion and gives revelatory insight into dance. For those who are already students of dance, it brings the nuanced discoveries, perspective and rich details of forty years of somatic research to bear on the inner workings of a creation process.

After intermission, Mascall Dance will perform Homewerk, a dance that examines the idea of home through global stories and images of dwelling.  Four dancers tell stories through words and choreographed movement, using cardboard props to create vivid imagery, transforming from houses to villages, to airport screens to medieval towns.

Homewerk is a dance for all ages.

Jennifer Mascall began as a touring improviser and rapidly received international attention.  Her emerging choreographic voice was characterized as maverick, visionary, radical and “the enfant terrible of Canadian dance”.  An accomplished teacher and  lecturer, Mascall’s educational programs such as Make a Dance and Homewerk tour extensively and are considered highly effective bridges between contemporary dance and multilevel learning.

Tickets for Nail to House/Homewerk may be purchased at Hollywood Video or at the door.
