For Body and Light : Parrsboro to Montreal to New York and beyond

You may have seen poet Ian Ferrier, choreographer Stephanie Morin-Robert and the dancers of For Body and Light, Linnea Gwiazda, Marie-Pier Gilbert and Marie-France Jacques, during their residency in Parrsboro last summer, a visit which culminated in Coming and Going, a contemporary performance inspired by historic Parrsboro and the movement of the tides in the Minas Basin.

Much as the tides which inspired it, the piece which began in Parrsboro seems to transform with each performance.

Their most recent version, which also included dancers Alexia Martel and Allison Burns, was a series of performances from March 1st through 7th at The Kraine Theater as part of the 2014 Frigid New York Festival. The show received great reviews (http://thehappiestmedium.com/2014/03/for-body-and-light-2014-frigid-new-york-festival/ and http://www.theasy.com/Reviews/2014/F/forbodyandlight.php).

Their next performance will be at VERSe FEST in Ottawa on March 27th at the Knox Presbyterian Church. For more information on that event https://www.facebook.com/events/408825385920299/

One thought on “For Body and Light : Parrsboro to Montreal to New York and beyond

  1. Two very different reviews, both appreciative. Same show I saw, a great tribute to Main&Station.
