The 12 songs in the show are taken from five of his musicals – Rose, The Incredible Adventures of Mary Jane Mosquito, The (Post) Mistress, The Sage, the Dancer, and the Fool and his latest new musical as yet to be titled. Think Cole Porter and Kurt Weill…with Cree lyrics. Songs will be sung in Cree, English, and French by extraordinary Peruvian-Canadian cabaret singer, Patricia Cano, accompanied by jazz saxophonist Vince Rimbach, and by Tomson Highway himself on the piano.

Aeris Körper is proud to announce the sixth edition of PROSPECTS: an evening of dance and discussion. PROSPECTS brings together local enthusiasts of art and dance with choreographers from the local, regional and international dance community to cultivate creative community dialogue.

Audience members will witness new and in-progress contemporary dance works whose themes will provide the foundation for the evening's dialogue. Each work will be followed by a Q&A discussion led by each choreographer, giving the audience an opportunity to ask questions, provide feedback and further examine the ideas presented. There will also be an opportunity to provide written feedback.

“This interactive, informal event brings together community members to share ideas, to learn about contemporary dance and to bring life to the local arts in Burlington,” said Lisa Emmons, Artistic Director.
