Dance Manitoba received this adorable note from one of our dearest friends... check out her show at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival....
Hey Dance Manitoba!
Happy July! We made it. Hopefully you're all enjoying the sun and finding some time to relax.
I am humbled and honoured to invite you to my heart and soul (my show) that will be premiering July.18th/2018 at 10pm.
This is my fifth year touring the North American Fringe Festival Circuit, and is the most exciting year yet. I have won CAFF. Meaning myself and 6 other Canadian companies have won entry into all North American fringe festivals of our choice. I have chosen 5. Winnipeg will be my second stop on my Canadian tour this summer.
I am performing my second ever solo show at the MTC Warehouse called Jellyfish are Immortal.
Jellyfish are Immortal ("a captivating piece of theatre" - Montreal Rampage) is an underwater adventure, TED-talk, dance show mixed with storytelling and a whole lot of heart. It's weird, provocative (gotta see it to believe it) theatre; it's me, it's what I do best. This is my most important work to date.
And you did hear right, there will be dance. Of course there will be.
If you want to check more of what I do, and who I am when I'm not husslin' on headset Stage Right at the MB Dance Festival, check out the facebook event:

I'd love to have you there. There's nothing I love more than having my worlds collide.
Take care and big marley stompin' love,
