Atlantic Movers attend Peggy Baker Dance Residency at Fredericton Playhouse

March 28, 2014 | On March 13th - 14th (despite a major winter storm!) members of the Atlantic Moves program gathered for meetings in conjunction with the Fredericton Playhouse's Peggy Baker Dance Residency.

The Movers were thrilled to view Peggy's Inside the Arts performance titled "The Poetics of Space," Thursday evening and honoured to meet with Peggy one-on-one the following morning. In her performance, Peggy was joined by dancer Sahara Morimoto for three beautiful excerpts of dance, with short explanations about the works prefacing each. The presentations were followed by a lively, spontaneous Q&A session with Peggy.

The following Atlantic Moves participants were in attendance:

Darcy Campbell, Confederation Centre of the Arts, Charlottetown, PE

Kathleen Hicks, O'Brien Arts Cetnre, Happy Valley-Goose Bay, NL

Susan Hoover, Osprey Arts Centre, Shelburne, NS

Tim Yerxa, Fredericton Playhouse, NB

Valerie Hiller, Fredericton Playhouse (Dance outreach worker), NB
