Denise Clarke is a popular and acclaimed performer who combines dance and storytelling, and with wag, we are promised a ‘Comedy of Tragic Proportions’.
Clarke prefers to keep the subject of the tragedy, based on her own personal grief, a secret for the performance, so we’ll have to wait and see what it is. Here is how the Firehall describes this work:
A comedy of tragic proportions by One Yellow Rabbit’s Denise Clarke, who dances her way through this solo performance of tender stories and beautiful music. Loss and cheerful discoveries permeate this blend of monologue and movement, which presents a mosaic of highly personal moments told in Clarke’s signature style. wag is a balm for your heart, a kick in the pants, and essential viewing from this seminal artist.
Created and performed by Denise Clarke.
I am looking forward to seeing and hearing how these dance, theatre,and music elements work together.
The Georgia Straight, a frequent sponsor of numerous Vancouver events, has an interesting write-up about Clarke and this show.
This Order of Canada-winning dancer often sells out the house, so I recommend buying your tickets now.
