While Liza embarks upon her next travel adventure, I am hitting up another Luminato piece. Tonight, as part of their free line-up at David Pecaut Square, is the much anticipated, Danse Lhasa Danse.
From Luminato's website:
Danse Lhasa Danse
A Bittersweet Tribute
Though born in New York, singer-songwriter Lhasa de Sela was truly both a Quebec and Canadian treasure. After settling in Montreal, her collaboration with rock guitarist Yves Desrosiers led to her debut album, La Llorona. The 2009 release of her third album coincided with her diagnosis with cancer, and her stunning voice was silenced less than two years later. Now, choreographer Pierre-Paul Savoie has created Danse Lhasa Danse, a dazzling multi-arts celebration of her life that seamlessly combines music, dance and film, presented for the first time outside Quebec at the Luminato Festival.
