Kaeja D'Dance May 7 to 11 2013 at Harbourfront Toronto

From a media release:

Kaeja d’Dance Announces 2013 Full Evening Contemporary Dance Concert to Premier at the
Harbourfront Centre
May 7-11, 2013

Co-Artistic Directors Karen and Allen Kaeja of Kaeja d’Dance are thrilled to announce their 2013 concert featuring two brand-new electrifying works: X-ODUS and Crave. Sensual, raw and “hyper-physical, high impact” (Toronto Star) the double-bill speaks to its audience of leaving, returning and the desire to be loved, highlighting unsettled solitude and the attempt to reconnect. XODUS and Crave run May 7-11, 2013 at the Enwave Theatre as a part of the Harbourfront Centre’s
NextSteps Series.

Allen Kaeja’s new work, X-ODUS reflects five individuals who are caught in a web of their unconscious design interact with explosive interruptions, subtle deceit, doubt and underlying intrigue. Each encounter uncovers the hidden worlds of complex relationships suddenly exposed and realized or fractured. These fragile and willful layers propel their capacity for empathy, tolerance and love. To arrive one has to leave. Karen Kaeja’s new duet, Crave, exposes the beauty and chaos of intimacy. Does the need to navigate loneliness towards connecting to another individual always surrender to love? Be it solitude, unsettledness, disconnection or longing, when do we welcome these awkward interfaces? Dark, whimsical, suspicious and naïve, the duo magnifies a life full of secrets and racing hearts that are held in the body and the traces that remain as they transform over time.

The concert features dancers Stephanie Tremblay-Abubo, Michael Caldwell, Zhenya Cerneacov, Karen Kaeja, Merideth Plumb plus ten guest appearances. Lighting is designed by Kimberly Purtell with original music scores by Sarah Sugarman and Edgardo Moreno.

• X-ODUS and Crave premiere Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at the Enwave Theatre at 8:00 PM, running until Saturday May 11.
• Visit Harbourfront Centre’s website for tickets.

• Kaeja d’Dance also presents their Gala evening on May 11, featuring prime seating and special Gala ticket purchaser perks.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
