Dancer in Residence Karen Kaeja has been busy! After a great workshop on Tuesday, she is preparing for a presentation on Friday evening:

Improvising Spaces is a monthly workshop and speaker series that will explore the ways in which improvisation can provide us with new ways of thinking and acting. It’s run out of Memorial University’s School of Music and is curated by Dr. Chris Tonelli.

This Friday is Session III, which will showcase the work that Karen has been doing with her rehearsal group in St. John’s. It takes place Friday, December 5th at the MMaP Gallery (2nd floor, Arts & Culture Centre), from 6-7pm.

See you there!
