Coming up in 2013…

Next year brings many new creative opportunities including taking HOMEbody on the road.  How can I not bring this show to prairie audiences?! As dance critic Paula Citron said HOMEbody should travel the country to big cities and small, because it’s Canadian to its roots.” So why not start right where the piece began – Saskatchewan!
Help me make this possible by contributing to the HOMEbody touring fund. As always, all donations are tax-deductible through HOMEbody’s producing partner Danceworks. ‘Tis the season for giving and I hope you’ll consider lending your support.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season and a new year full of love and happiness.
