Speechless heads to Amsterdam

I’ll be leaving for Amsterdam shortly to perform at the 22nd IMPRO Amsterdam fest, an international improvised theatre festival held every year in the Netherlands. This year’s performers come from Australia, Portugal, Colombia, the USA, the UK, Sweden, and Canada (that’s me). I’ll be performing SPEECHLESS there with my partners Daniel Orrantia and Felipe Ortiz from Bogotá on January 25th, which is exciting because we haven’t shared the stage for a few months. This performance in Holland will mark our 15th country in which we’ve done the show!

I’m happy to be performing in a few other theatre shows as well, including Folie à Deux with the UK’s Charlotte Gittins and Andrew Hunter Murray.

On top of all that, I’ll be teaching my workshop “The Soundtrack: Rethinking how music is used in Improv Theatre” and our members of Speechless will teach “Scenes without Words,” which goes over our classic toolbox for doing improv using only your body and music.

I’ll be back home in Canada by February 1st. Stay tuned for more adventures!

Then this event might be for you: Fort Whyte Alive is putting on its second-ever summer camp for adults.

Whitney Houston Tribute this month!

The world lost a legend on February 11, 2012. Whitney Houston is one of the most legendary women of our time and so, every year since her death, my DJ duo HOUSE OF GOLD DIAMONDS celebrates her with a tribute dance party. The annual tradition has grown to huge proportions in just a few years, [...]

Kids! Let’s dance.

Are you tired of being a small child that can’t go out late at night and dance to Mama Cutsworth’s DJ sets? Do you feel like listening to music other than lullabies or the theme song from Frozen? Good news, kids of Winnipeg, your wait is over! Pack up your parents and come out on [...]

Motown on Mondays!

We just kicked off a brand-new Monday night party here in Winnipeg, and I already love it. MOTOWN ON MONDAYS is a weekly party that was founded in San Francisco in 2009. Since then, it’s expanded to multiple cities across North America. Think of it as a family of like-minded DJs who all dearly love [...]

Populating Winnipeg with Female DJs

I used to feel pretty lonely, when it came to DJing. There have never been all that many women who took on DJing for any extended period of time around here, or anywhere. There are certainly some excellent women spinning (like DJ Shortee, Mama Miche, DJ Tereza) but it’s still pretty uncommon. Which is why [...]
