I’ve mentioned this project called SPEECHLESS before.
Last month I went to South America for three and a half weeks to perform with Daniel Orrantia and Felipe Ortiz (both from Bogotá’s La Gata Cirko and Picnic Impro) in our collaboration called SPEECHLESS. Daniel and Felipe are incredible, expressive performers who combine physical theatre, long-form improv and clown techniques while I improvise a soundtrack for them on my turntables.
After such wonderful shows abroad, it’s thrilling to finally bring this show to my hometown of Winnipeg for the Fringe Theatre Festival.
Come check it out!

Last night I flew back home after three and a half weeks in South America. I went to Bogotá, Colombia and São Paulo, Brazil to perform in my three-person theatre project called SPEECHLESS.

I am over the moon excited to perform in Bogotá tonight! For those that don’t know about Speechless, the project that has taken me to Colombia: It’s a long-form improvised theatre show with Daniel Orrantia and Felipe Ortiz of Picnic Improvisación Teatral.

Somehow thirteen years have passed since I first walked into the CKUW studio and tried my hand at making radio. Stylus Radio began on May 8th, 2001 as a music magazine show (i.e. we did a lot of interviews and reviews) and I had two co-hosts: Tom Wilson and Matt Hannam (shout outs to you [...]
I am so pleased to announce that my party-making, butt-shaking, lip-synching collaborative DJ duo project with DJ J. Jackson has finally got its own web presence. When we DJ together we are known as House of Gold Diamonds. We threw our first party together in 2012 at the now-defunct (but still loved) Lo Pub. It [...]
Two years ago, I threw a very special dance party with a brand-new DJ partner, DJ J. Jackson. The party was called “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” and it filled up the beloved Lo Pub with dancers and music and sweat. We played only music by the great divas like Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson and [...]

It was a hit! They scratched, beatmatched, blended songs together in tight 15-minute sets. They bravely played to a full [...]
