Hello friends and fans! The summer seems to have simply flown by. I guess that's what happens while you are busy with a newborn... This July my partner and I welcomed our son, Ignatius (Iggy), into the world. He is an absolute joy! Now my creations will have to share my love with this little bean. Despite my new mom status, I have some dance treats for you. I hope you enjoy this third edition of the AllisonEB Dance newsletter!
Enjoy a new episode of my dance podcast, Dirty Feet. This episode features Brittney Canda, a choreographer and dance film director.

Listen now!

I've released a new episode of Choreographer's Commentary! In the style of a director's commentary, I invite Elizabeth Emond-Stevenson to discuss her work, where the wings grow while we watch the archive video of this stage production. I worked as outside eye on the piece, so I come to the conversation with some insight. Watch now!

This fall I had the pleasure of returning to studio with a short residency at the Ottawa Dance Directive. This was a continuation of my 2019 project, Life Cycle of a Malignant Debate, and my dance film, The Debate. I turned this duet into a group piece with a cast of 5 super talented collaborating performers. Become my patron for a sneak peek.
