Good Women Dance Collective returns with its fourth annual Convergence, a showcase of inspiring, athletic and thoughtful contemporary dance.
Convergence highlights works created and performed by Albertan artists. This yearâ€™s lineup features the premiere of two new works including Caveat, choreographed by Good Womenâ€™s Ainsley Hillyard featuring collective artists Alison Kause, Alida Nyquist-Schultz and Kate Stashko; and Surfacing, choreographed by Constance Cooke featuring Winnipegâ€™s Rebecca Sawdon. Through the dynamic melding of text and movement, Ainsley Hillyardâ€™s Caveat examines Aesopâ€™s fable Avaricious and Envious, creating a world where the stakes are high and battles are won and lost. This emotionally driven performance delves into the complex connection between envy and competitiveness, ultimately re-imagining the ending of Aesopâ€™s classic tale. Constance Cookâ€™s Surfacing showcases the intricate dynamics involved in personal development and evolution. A solo performance featuring Rebecca Sawdon and a large wooden table, Surfacing is an introspective exploration of metamorphosis.
