10 Days of Fringe Previews – Day 5: Dance!

by Patrick Gauthier

June 6, 2012

Like dance? You’re in luck. Besides the astounding number of musical comedies in this year’s festival (seriously, go look at the program. So. Many. Musicals.) the line up this year also features multiple dance shows (anyone remember the last dance show at Fringe? Was it The Duck Wife?), and here are previews for two of them…

HETEROLLECTUAL: LOVE, AND OTHER DUMB IDEAS
Pollux Dance
Toronto, Canada
by Leslie-Ann Glen
60 mins | Dance Dramedy | PG
$10

Love is like a butterfly. A butterfly with vicious talons and biting fangs, whose mind-control ability invites prehistoric behaviour and misdirects rational thought, disconnecting human beings from earth and space/time. This is a series of occurrences surrounding six young adults in love, in lust, and in despair over it all.

Venue 1 – Arts Court Theatre

Saturday June 16 8:00
Sunday June 17 3:30

A MACSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
Caithream Celtic Dance Fusion
Ottawa, Canada
by Caithream Celtic Dance Fusion, Shakespeare
75 mins (with intermission) | Dance, Comedy | General
$10

Shakespeare’s story with a Scottish twist! Told through dance, speech, and song, this comedy of love gone astray, mischievous fairies, and bumbling actors is a treat for the whole family. Highland dance meets jazz, contemporary, and Latin and African rhythms to create a uniquely Canadian fusion style.
