Umbrella Girl

November 1, 2019 @ 8:00 pm MDT

Turn on your television or flip through your LIFE magazine and there we are! We are the happy, comfortable and exuberant family of the perfect era. As perfect as Mother’s apple pie, as reliable as your Chevrolet, as tasteful as your Edwards coffee. You know us well. Or do you?
 
Woven through tap, body percussion, contemporary dance and theatre, this is a story of dialogues, and our all-consuming effort to maintain our identities in the eyes of those who shape the visions of who we need to be. 
 

This kaleidoscope of dance features three distinguished tap dance artists. Creator, Brock Jellison, who was the choreographer and lead soloist for the 2010 Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies, associate choreographer for Theatre Calgary’s Billy Elliot, and former principal dancer of Tap Dogs. He is joined on stage by co-choreographer Tasha Lawson, former principal dancer with Tapestry Dance Company, assistant artistic director with Cirque Du Soleil, KOOZA, and founder of Tri-Tone Productions and the Rhythm, Body and Soul Tap Festival. Shianne Elliot, one of western Canada’s up and coming multi-disciplinary dance artists completes the trio.

You will hear us speak, loud and clear.
