It's a Body Thing, OK?

It's a Body Thing, OK?
Dance, music and dialogue make points about how we relate to our bodies

by Julia Sauvé

(Stuck up) Stacey: Didn't you know, that when the clock strikes midnight on December 31, we'll finally be in the age of Aquarius. Ya know, peace will guide the planets, love will steer the stars, and all that jazz.
Jacque (le Jock): What the?

Profile: 
Joan MacNeill

by Jane Ledwell

It's not that Joan MacNeill doesn't like to talk about art. She clearly loves to visit galleries, to paint, and to encourage artistry in others.

Shelkey for Precedent

A Cultural Life
by Joseph Sherman

Let me see if I can impress you with a fact: it's not my millennium. Strictly speaking, and I can speak strictly when it profits me, it is the year 5760 and I've 40 years to go before I should have to worry about noughts and other irascible digits.
