Rouge Gorge's, The Dress Writer postponed

BRIAN'S BLOG | January 9, 2017

Happy New Year dance Enthusiasts!

Brian Webb Dance Company is very excited to welcome 2017 with two performances of Van Grimde Corps Secrets' Symphonie 5.1. This is the second time we've presented this very engaging company. The first was two summers ago for The Body In Question[s]2.  This exhibition was an amazing amalgamation of the performing body, visual arts and new technologies. I am excited to say that their new work, Symphonie 5.1, takes the intersection of live performance and contemporary technologies to an even higher level!

Hello From Across the Pond

Dear Friends,

Just back from a bit of a trip!

First I was in St. John's Newfoundland with my dance presenter colleagues including fellow Edmontonian Gerry Morita for our annual conference. While there, our host Neighbourhood Dance Works presented their Festival of New Dance, with works from across Canada and Europe. I think it's impossible to be in St. John's and not have a wonderful time!

Mile Zero Dance

BRIAN'S BLOG | September 13, 2016

I've had some really fine dance experiences in the last couple of weeks. First at Mile Zero Dance, I was really quite moved by the Butoh performance of Diego Pinon of Mexico. It was subtle and mature. No showing off. Just a very honest expression of a man's spiritual journey.
