Pick of the Day (Bonus Edition): Prairie Dance Circuit

Presented by New Dance Horizons, this showcase features work by five prairie choreographers. Funding is provided by CanDance, and as the showcases’s title implies, it will be making a circuit of prairie cities to promote interest in contemporary dance:

The five works include Quiver by Nicole Mion (Calgary), which will be danced by James Gnam; Under Cover of Darkness by Davida Monk (Calgary), which will be danced by Hilary Maxwell; 30% Gone, which is both choreographed and performed by Brian Webb (Edmonton); The Occasion of Our Passing by Brent Lott (Winnipeg), which will be danced by Lott and Sarah Roche; and finally, Soft Foot by Robin Poitras (Regina), which will be performed by Ziyan Kwan (pictured above).

Prairie Dance Circuit runs tonight at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 2 and 8 p.m. at NDH’s studio at 2207 Harvey St. in east central Regina. Tickets are General $25, and  Students & Seniors $20. For more info phone 525-5393.
