Merging Dance and Art: Bas-Reliefs
For those familiar with the work of Canadian visual artist Betty Goodwin, you can understand why a dancer, of all people, would feel compelled to create an entire show using Goodwin's work as inspiration. Over her fifty-plus career, Goodwin has attacked a number of subjects in a variety of media, but none with such profound interest as the human body.
Using Goodwin's bodies as a point of departure, dancer/choreographer Marie-JosĂŠe Chartier brings together 11 artists from Toronto and Montreal in a multi-disciplinary collaboration, incorporating dance, video, lighting, design and photography.
Bas-Reliefs by Chartier Danse is a DanceWorks presentation and opens tonight at the Enwave Theatre as part of Harbourfront Centre's NextSteps Series. Show runs from November 29th - December 1st with 8pm performances.
