Toronto dancer and choreographer Michael Du Maresq returns
to Artword with a new dance work called and in this room....
The full-length performance runs in the new Artword
Alternative performance space from March 20 to 23, 2002.
in this room
is an exploration of childhood
memories, performed by dancers Leanne Dixon, Michael Du
Maresq, Bonnie Kim and Darryl Tracy. A highly collaborative
work, Du Maresq has asked each dancer to delve into their
own childhood to retrieve memories, exploring these with
text, movement and song.
Maresq says, The new work is like opening the doors
of our past, looking through the windows, rummaging
through the closets to find the things that make up the
myriad of emotions, colours, games, people and experiences
that we had.
new work is an extension of Du Maresqs solo Blue
Button which premiered at Artword in 1998. Both pieces,
though personal, have a universality of theme.
Du Maresqs recent dance film hollow premiered at the
Moving Pictures festival at Harbourfront in October,
work Dancing Barefoot with Patti, based on the poems and
music of rocker Patti Smith, and danced by Leanne Dixon,
premiered at Artword Theatre in 1998 and was remounted in
