Festival of New Dance 2015 (Wednesday’s Schedule)

October 7, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Performances May Be Permanent

Performances May Be Permanent is a theatre-dance tour across wide-ranging territory: Glenn Gould, a dying mother, the nature of memory, the inner workings of a brain hooked on music, and the redemptive power of connection.

KATE STORY is a performer and writer, born and raised in Newfoundland and now living in Ontario. She is this year’s recipient of the Ontario Arts Foundation’s K.M. Hunter Award in Theatre.

BILL BRENNAN’S expertise as a pianist, percussionist, composer and producer can be heard on some 100 albums to date. His album Solo Piano 2 won the MusicNL Instrumental album of the year in 2008, and he was named the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council Artist of the Year for 2006. He directs the Memorial University Jazz Ensemble and Gamelan Sagara Asih  (the Memorial University Gamelan Ensemble).



Jamais Seule (Never Alone)

Jamais Seule (Never Alone) is an intimate work inspired by the particular movement possibilities of quadriplegic dancer France Geoffroy. Created in collaboration with France Geoffroy, Sophie Michaud and video maker L E M M, this autobiographical piece focuses on the artist’s desire to express herself in a constant back and forth between past and present. As her dance limitations and possibilities are exposed, at the crossroads of sensitive and striking gestures and poetic and revealing images, Jamais Seule is a modest and irreverent look at another reality.

Artistic Director and Co-creator FRANCE GEOFFROY completed a college degree in arts, in 1997, while studying the Bartenieff technique and improvisation with Valerie Dean. She also took workshops at CandoCo in London. In 2000, she founded Corpuscule Danse. France has danced for Harold
