Renegade Bodies

In Uncategorized on June 5, 2010 at 5:48 pm

On Thursday, June 10, 2010 I will be presenting video of works from 1976-78 at the conference of the Society of Canadian Dance Studies, Renegade Bodies: Dance in Canada in the 1970s.  The works are Drop, Lap, Lean Cuts and Demo Model.  The photos in this post are of the 1977 work, Lean Cuts, and were taken by Private Eye, a.k.a. Thaddeus Holownia, at A Space in Toronto (original Nicholas St. location) where the work was performed. I have posted video documentation of Drop on You Tube, complete with an interview after the performance in June 1976 out back of my old apartment and studio at 410 Queen St. W. in Toronto (beside the Cameron Tavern which at the time was pre-artists’ bar.) I was 23 years old at the time which is the same age as my daughter now. There are short excerpts of Demo Model on my website…..
