MARTIN MORROW - The Globe & Mail, 08/08/01:<BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>The wisdom of BONES</B><BR>Tonight, the Banff Centre raises the curtain on what may be the world's first aboriginal dance opera<P>Taking a backstage tour of the Banff Centre's Eric Harvie Theatre, you suddenly feel as if you've stepped into the dinosaur exhibit at a natural-history museum. Enormous bones lie in a row on the floor, being carefully coated with a substance by a stagehand, while a huge, Jurassic-looking rock looms nearby.<P>Are these the fossilized remains of a triceratops, or a T. rex? Not at all. They're the eponymous props for BONES, the Banff Centre's -- and possibly the world's -- first-ever aboriginal dance opera, which will debut tonight as part of this year's Banff Arts Festival.<P>Once they've been slathered with a special luminous paint, the bones will glow in the dark and, in a coup de théâtre, rattle to life and take the shape of a 5-metre-high doll.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR>To read more search <B>MARTIN MORROW</B> on the <A HREF="http://www.globeandmail.com" TARGET=_blank>Globe & Mail's</A> 7 Day Search<P><p>[This message has been edited by Marie (edited August 09, 2001).]
