Embryotrophic Cavatina - Requiem For My FriendFriday, September 15, 2017
As Ks go Krzysztof Kieslowski and Kokoro Dance would be pretty close in my files. But they are not because I have a separate file under D for Dance and that is where Kokoro Dance is.
In my Thursday Vancouver Sun (yes I am subscribed to the daily as I want to know what is going on in my city) I read the interview between the Sun’s Shawn Conner and Kokoro Dance’s one half (the other being Barbara Bourget) Jay Hirabayashi.
To my amazement the two Ks are very close. You see the choreographic work Embryotrophic Cavatina (with Hirabayashi, Bourget, Billy Marchenski and Molly McDermott) that is to open this Wednesday at 8pm at the Roundhouse Performance Centre has as its music composer Sbigniew Preisner's orchestral work Requiem For My Friend. Preisner’s friend was Polish film director Kieslowski who died in 1998.
I photographed Kieslowski in October of 1994.
I met up with Barbara Bourget and Jay Hirabayashi at the opening of Thomas Anfield's show at the West 7 Studios on Friday. Behind the pair is a work by Anfield and we all know that his favourite subject is his wife Melo.
