Earlier this month the team of Guetcha Guaritcha was carefully preparing for the exciting premiere of this place, choreographed by Karen Kaeja and I:POLITICAL, choregraphed by Mateo Galindo-Torres, to be livestreamed from The Citadel: Ross Centre for Dance at the end of January. A multidisciplinary examination of identity, proximity and solitude, the double-bill was to be performed by Mateo and Katherine Semchuk, directed by William Yong, and presented by Citadel + Compagnie.
The new provincial stay-at-home orders have currently put a pause on the recording and broadcasting of artistic events from performing arts venues. We are incredibly proud of the time, care, creativity and effort that has been put in by Guetcha Guaritcha and its artistic collaborators. Though we are sad to postpone this thought-provoking program, we look forward to working closely with their incredibly resilient production team to bring this project to fruition once it is safe to do so.
