By Carol Anderson
Chasing the Tale of Contemporary Dance, Parts 1 and 2, provide a snapshot of Canadian theatrical dance at the dawn of the third millennium as seen by Carol Anderson during the 1998 and 2000 Canada Dance Festivals in Ottawa. As relevant as these public diaries are today, they will become even more significant with time and may be the only lasting record of this period in the theatrical dance story. Chasing the Tale of Contemporary Dance Part 2 reflects the thinking of the period, the approach to theatrical dance and the meatier aspects of the subjects and themes running through the works.
