Not enough freaks at this Fringe

Fringe festivals, by definition, are supposed to exist on the periphery of the artistic mainstream. They are intended to be freewheeling and more than a little crazy.

Celebrating independents

The first half of the festival reveals several interesting trends: There is an emphasis on beautiful dance, anchored in strong technique and form.

There is also real quality of choreographic output, which means spectators can pick any one of the first eight fFIDA series and spend an entertaining hour.

Fringe dance festival can be a bit of a gamble

The other outstanding dancing came from Spanish-based National Ballet School alumnus Keith Morino in Oh, yeah!!??, a high energy solo of his own devising, absorbingly paced as a journey of the ego toward burnout and disorientation and groping for meaning.

One out of three ain't bad


The fringe Festival of Independent Dance Artists, running through Sunday at Buddies in Bad times Theatre, is not likely to be the occasion to see art of the life-changing variety. But if one performance out of three in each hour-long series manages to entertain or awe you with its beauty, then you haven't wasted $12.

Speech finds a place in fringe dance festival

In the riskiest of three spoken word pieces in Series I, Q & A, Jessica Runge prompts the audience to ask her questions or make suggestions, which she promises to answer honestly, while performing a structured improvisational dance. Runge's ability to think on her (moving) feet makes it worthy of any fringe event.

More eloquent than anything that was spoken during last night's shows was Dwain Jones dancing After, a solo created by Toronto choreographer Dawne Carleton.

An eclectic mix of movers and shakers

The fringe Festival of Independent Dance second wave opened with 14 choreographers showing their wares. Mercifully, artistic crimes were limited as the dancesmiths put their best foot forward.

New York's statuesque Isabel Gotzkowsky has never disappointed in her several fFIDA visits, and her two duets, performed with the excellent Jon Zimmerman, were right on form.

Dance shows mouth is part of the body

The first Words 'n' Motion show last weekend yielded largely prosaic and disappointing results, but the second is far more promising, thanks largely to Toronto dancer/choreographer Jessica Runge.

Among fFIDA's plentiful solo offerings, Dawne Carleton's After (Series G) is a standout, in no small measure because of the committed performance given it by dancer Dwaine Jones.

American choreographers seize the spotlight

This year, the Americans were the big surprise. In the past, their work has been patchy, but this time they all brought pieces that demanded to be noticed.

New York's Wendy Blum Dance Theatre performed Whimsical Bloodhound, a trio for three women -- Blum, Jill Cantaluppi and Kacie Chang -- and a man's jacket. . . Most compelling was Blum's quirky choreography, particularly her difficult lifts and demanding contortions.

2002 fFIDA was a mixed experience
Kizuna wins Paula Citron choreography award


While the festival continues to attract new dancers and introduce new elements, the festival's main event is growing stale.

There are dancers and companies who appear year in and year out at fFIDA, having entered every possible category in the lotteried event. Rarely do they bring anything fresh to the stage.
