West Village Theatre, 2007 10 Avenue SWCalgary, ABT3 C 0 K4 After 10 outstanding years, Calgary???s Soulocentric Festival returns as Soulocentric Contemporary Performance Showcase, featuring dynamic, contemporary dance by emerging and professional choreographers and performers, with an eclectic lineup of contemporary dance, jazz, physical theatre, and more, February 19 to 21. The 2015 Soulocentric Contemporary Performance Showcase is also pleased to welcome Judith Mendelsohn in the only full-length main stage solo performance: a physical theatre piece entitled Belle Paris. A graduate of the University of Calgary???s MFA in Theatre, Mendelsohn is recently returned from a three-year study in Paris, France, and has previously studied clowning with John Turner of Canada???s Mump and Smoot. Mendelsohn has performed physical theatre and clowning throughout Calgary, including roles with Green Fools Theatre, Downstage Theatre, and Sage Theatre. Mendelsohn???s Belle Paris???a bouffon performance designed to give voice to the ???Other??? through parody or mockery???is based in large part on her years abroad studying with esteemed French clown, Philippe Gaulier, and highlights the palpable racism permeating French society, particularly against those of African, Muslim and Jewish descent. Soulocentric Contemporary Performance Showcase runs February 19 ??? 21 at West Village Theatre???formerly Dancers Studio West???2007 10 Avenue SW.
