Friday Update!

Good morning,

I have had a crazy week of low energy and fighting to get stuff done and deadlines met! But always loads of fun out dancing with my classes and trying new stuff to keep my brain active and thinking -always thinking!

I have the plans for the Dancers’ Bazaar on October 17th are well underway, The Vintage Cabaret show is now in my calendar to support my good dance buds out there – I won’t be dancing so I get to enjoy everyone’s company from a helper/audience seat!  Starting work on my student choreographies for my December OCCP will begin next week – though the songs have almost all been chosen – so that’s fun!

And in November, Bollywood For Fun will be making a few public appearances-  more details on our main website for that soon…let’s get through October’s adventures first!

Update time:

Another fun weekend  is ahead and here are just a few things going on in Ottawa that might be of interest to the dancer in ya!

Full details on the News page – but the gist of it below!

TONIGHT [ Friday, October 1st]: Repo! The Genetic Opera

Shadowcast Performance by the Necromerchant’s Payment

Club SAW-67 Nicholas Street (near the arts court and next to the youth hostel)

Doors open at 8pm

Show starts at 9pm.

Admission $10

Welcome to “Repo! – the Genetic Opera!” Bring your zydrate and get ready for some fun with Ottawa’s shadowcast performers – “The Necromerchant’s Payment” – a tribute group to the movie “Repo! the Genetic Opera”.  Shadowcasting is when a live ensemble recreates a movie on stage while the film is playing behind them. It is the ultimate melding of film and theatre, with the cast complimenting the action on screen, and subtly contrasting it with their own unique vision. As such, you are really getting two shows for the price of one. It is the perfect blend of theatre and film, with audience participation and gags thrown in to create a fun, unique event.
