Lisa Phinney: Analogy for Solid Bones

When: Oct. 1-3, 8 p.m. 2009

Last January, dancer/choreographer Lisa Phinney premiered a work-in-progress at DANSpace, which was then titled World from a Place, featuring a stellar group of dancers: Jacinte Armstrong, Susanne Chui, Francis Brake and Ruth-Ellen Kroll Jackson. Sexy, funny, smart and incredibly physical, the dancers, dressed in cocktail frocks, crawled, slinked, tumbled and fought as if it was the raucous end to a late-night party. This October, Phinney is premiering her new work, called Analogy for Solid Bones, inspired by her field research on loons and their ecosystems. Oh yeah, did we mention that Phinney also has her masters in atmospheric science? Presented by Live Art Productions, featuring nine dancers, an original score by Sageev Oore and set design by Peter Dykhuis, Analogy is one of the strongest showcases of Halifax talent happening this fall. –Sue Carter Flinn
