THE THREE CORNERED HAT

A quintet of dancers at the top of their game - Lara Barclay, Amber Funk Barton, Dario Dinuzzi, Billy Marchenski, Darcy McMurray and Chris Wright - premiere The Three Cornered Hat, an essay on movement and space.  At the centre of the work is a pile of empty red hardcover artist notebooks:  traps for poetry, whose empty pages lead into worlds offering us possibility and mystery.  Jennifer Mascall’s latest work examines the life of the space between two movements, two bodies, a book’s pages, performer and audience.  These inhabit both the topography of the performance site, Chapel Arts Centre, and the landscape of our imagination.  Formed through Mascall’s Public Research*, the dance is steeped in the collaborative audacity of MascallDance Creatives  –  architect/designer Bill Pechet, composer Stefan Smulovitz (live on viola and laptop) videographer Candelario Andrade,  writer/ slam poet Barbara Adler,  lighting by John Macfarlane. *more about public research at www.mascalldance.ca
