Pick of the Day: Blueprint Series

For several years now, New Dance Horizons has been presenting this small-scale performance series where local artists in a variety of disciplines (dance, theatre, visual art, literature) have an opportunity to showcase works in progress and gather feedback from the audience on what they felt worked about the piece and what could be improved upon. Most artists do labour in isolation a fair bit when they're creating a work, but at some point, especially in the performing arts, it's important to see how things look on stage.

The Blueprint Series is held at NDH's studio at 2207 Harvey St. in east-central Regina. Today at 3 p.m., presenters will be NDH artistic director Robin Poitras (pictured above from a work called Silk) & Caitlyn Coflin, Jeff Morton & Erin Gee and Kevin MacKenzie and Tanya Dahms. If you saw our Dec. 17 stocking stuffer issue, by the way, Tanya was the My Music subject. And Erin Gee had a video in the recently closed Dunlop Gallery show Mind the Gap!

February 7, Deanna Peters and Traci Foster will be presenting works, then on March 21 the former artistic director of the Youth Ballet Company of Saskatchewan Connie Moker-Wernikowski and Tanya Dahms will be showcasing new works.

I hate to feed the trolls, but: many people care. This is a fantastic lineup of artists, and we should feel lucky that work of this quality is being presented in Regina.

Incidentally, I'm pretty sure there are some commenting rules:

"Comments deemed contrary to the spirit of enlightened discourse and/or entertaining squawking shall be mercilessly squished.

Bigotry, hate, threats and psychosis will not be tolerated--but that goes without saying."

I suggest 'Anonymous' saves his/her douchebaggery for 4chan.
