Peggy Baker Dance Projects will be all over Canada this year! Sahara is currently travelling with the company for the Audio Action Tour of coalesce and armour in British Columbia. What’s it like to be on the road? Sahara gives us the run-down of what her days are like…
coalesce is the first choreography I got to go on tour with, so it’s always special to come back to this piece and to have opportunities to dance the work in different cities such as New York, Calgary, and now in Vancouver. Each city brings different vibes to the dance and it’s been really nice to experience that.
Days in rainy Vancouver flew by. Most of my daily routines included taking Peggy’s technique class, stretching, and going back to our hotel for a nap (taking a 10am morning class after performing the night before became very early!), have an early dinner, go to theatre and warm up, make up, hair, little more dancing, and then perform! Sean and Andrea had rehearsals during afternoons towards our Toronto season, so we all had different schedules. But we always connect before the show to go over a few sections of the dance together, and to also reconnect with ourselves and to the piece.
We’re now in Nanaimo, and have many outreach programs to teach. I’m looking forward to connecting with the community and to performing here!
Catch Sahara, Andrea, and Sean when they return to Toronto performing in he:she from March 28 – April 6 at the Betty Oliphant Theatre. Click here to buy your tickets today!
