 Yvette Nolan departs from IPAA’s...

Migrating-Geese-e1293726934343Message from the President of IPAA:
I was recently in the rehearsal room in Vancouver where stories were shared about the teachings of the geese. The leader of the geese, the one at the point of the V is the one that guides the group. The leader cuts through the wind and air current so the rest can move forward with more ease.

Moving forward.

Arriving at a new place.

There is also a time when the leader has to fall back and others must take the lead, that the work is ultimately carried by the collective.



 Justin Many Fingers down under

Justin Many Fingers down under“I am on a international exchange grant from Canada Council for the arts.

I am working with Frances Rings, the choreographer of “SHEOKS” that is under a double bill with another works called I.B.I.S and the bill is called “LORE” and its Bangarra Dance Theatre Company.

My main intent is to understand how Frances works with the Aboriginal culture in a contemporary form. Bangarra has recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. After six years of my first inspiration of the company I have finally arrived with an invitation for Fran. It’s been a long journey to get here but I finally made it and the timing as never been better as I have recently entered my first year as a choreographer and producing my new works with my new company Niitsitapi Dance Theatre that is based on my reserve the Blood tribe in Alberta.

The connections I have made artistically from the Native community here in Sydney Australia has changed the way I see Indigenous performing arts that i yet to achieve with my work and my company.”
