Pick of the Day (Tomorrow Edition): Louise LeCavalier

Louise LeCavalier is an icon of Canadian contemporary dance.

Yes, such people exist. Sometimes they even get acknowledged for the tremendous contribution they’ve made to Canadian culture. Take LeCavalier. In 2010 she was awarded the Order of Canada. If I worked for Sun TV, and I had the opportunity to interview her, I’d grill her about all the taxpayers’ money she’s wasted over the years — be it as a solo dancer, or as the principal dancer in Edouard Lock’s acclaimed dance troupe La La Human Steps.

But I don’t, so I wouldn’t. Instead, I’ll just offer up the info that Friday and Saturday night at 8 p.m. she’ll be performing in the Shumiatcher Room in the basement of Conexus Arts Centre. The performance is being presented by New Dance Horizons, and will include two works: Children and A Few Minutes of Lock (pictured above is a scene from the former work).

Tickets are Adults $35, Students & Seniors $25. For more info call 525-5393.

One thought on “Pick of the Day (Tomorrow Edition): Louise LeCavalier”

  1. I can’t believe this piece of shit rag still exists. You people can barely give this glorified ass-wipe away. On the plus side, the prairie dog has always been very accurate in revealing why the rest of Canada hates regina if you take a good look at their “humour.”
    I’ve never seen their food critic give a negative review of a regina restaurant, and the restaurant’s that are reviewed have always bought ad-space in the dog, the sole reason why they are getting a review.
    I’m not familiar with this dancer’s work, but it’s obvious that the writer of this piece, this gregory beatty is a failed artist of one kind or another. And that’s the common thread that runs throughout most prarie dog articles: too cool to enjoy something created by someone successful outside of their tiny 7-15 people clique of hipster twats. Yeah, enjoy that new deerhoof record you downloaded for free, you worthless sissy’s.
