tiger princess dance projects: In Search of the Holy Chop Suey & Zhōng Xīn

Where or in what time space does identity reside? Yvonne Ng asks How does someone else’s movement quality impact my own dancing self? as she undertakes a pointed investigation for her solo, In Search of the Holy Chop Suey. In it, she ponders a life of creation and imitation in movement and mines influences from sources as varied as her mother, modern dance and kung fu legends, ordinary people, wild animals and more. Says Ng, “When I imitate, I also uncover something unique in myself. Each time I fail to become more like my mother—or my favourite kung fu hero Bruce Lee—I become more me.”

In explaining the title, Ng says: “In the late seventies/early eighties, there was a TV series called In Search of… that focused on mysterious phenomena, e.g. Loch Ness, Holy Grail, Big Foot, etc. But they would never find the ‘thing’ that was the subject of the particular episode. Chop Suey is a dish that reportedly originated from migrant Chinese workers who lived in the U.S.A. in the 19th century. When I was young, living in Asia, I wanted everything western. I knew about the dish and equated it to something Western/North American. The title is a comment on my belief that each of us has a deep desire to find meaning for our lives—even as that meaning eludes us and/or is not what it seems.”

Ng then extends the exploration to Zhong Xin (which translates to centre or core in Mandarin), her trio for three dancers. The dancers and Ng unite, each harnessing different qualities and histories. In collaboration with composer Nick Storring and set designer Joe Pagnan, Ng and her dancers propose an unknowable universe of possibilities—anchored by memory, identity and the body.

Benjamin Rollo Presents: Great Canadian Singer-Songwriters VOL II

 

Ben returns with more of Canada’s best, plus his own tuneful, heartfelt songs. Special guests this time span the latest, to the greatest. Arana Gillis is one of Canada’s finest new artists. Her unique vocals can be heard on her latest single Freedom, one of the best popular songs of 2017. I can honestly say she’s the single most exciting artist I’ve heard in a long time.” says GRAMMY winning Elton John collaborator Bernie Taupin. Roots and blues tour de force Mike Todd joins Ben once again following his sensational set last season, plus Kitchener’s own JUNO Award winning producer, and singer-songwriter Rob Szabo. Legendary local musician, and Ben’s father, Randy Stewart Rollo rounds out a great ensemble that spans the generations.
