Call it the contemporary dance version of a mash-up track. On Tuesday night at the Canada Dance Festival, which runs June 8 to 16, students from five different dance schools across the country will perform Joe et Rodolphe, a composite production of two different works choreographed by Canadian artist Jean-Pierre Perrault. Jocelyn Todd, who’s just graduating from The School of Dance’s three-year contemporary program, is the only Ottawa native in the ambitious production. Ottawa Magazine’s Emma Paling caught up with her a few days before the big show.
What does it mean to be part of this festival? It’s a great opportunity for any dancer who’s graduating to be a part of this festival.
Jocelyn and her peers will be performing Joe et Rodolphe on Tuesday, June 12, at 8:30 p.m. $36-$43, students $18-$21. NAC Theatre, 53 Elgin St., www.canadadance.ca
