“An Ex-Cabaret Dancer’s Ovarian Sculptures and a Ritual of Mathematical Healing presented by KO Dance Projects; sponsored by Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Edmonton Arts Council.
Another mysterious guerrilla, site-specific performance by maverick local choreographer, KO, taking rhythmic human sculpture, the shaman coyote and a ritual of cabaret mathematics, into one of Edmonton’s many forgotten architectural landscapes- the old provincial museum.
Catch 3 impulsive performances broadcasted on Zoom: June 24, 25 & 26, 2021, @ 8:00 pm featuring 5 of Edmonton’s smartest dancers, visual installations by Montreal/Edmonton-based, visual artist/scenographer, Jeremy Gordaneer, and, special guest, straight from Edmonton’s river valley… a wild animal.
KO Dance Projects is a project-based dance company in Edmonton, led by local movement artist, Kathleen Ochoa (KO). It is inspired by Qi Gong, improvisational movement research, visual art, and site-specific installations. Through the use of audience feedback and working alongside various artistic and scientific collaborators, KO creates work that connects the body to interdisciplinary experiments through perception and internal energy work.
