Presented by Great Canadian Theatre Company, Propeller Dance once again breaks barriers with FRAME OF MIND. Featuring the premiere of an evocative new work, A Look Inside, the theme of mental health gets a breath of fresh air under the direction of Shara Weaver who aims to “open windows of truth, reject assumptions and re-imagine a world of inter-connectedness and understanding”. The show opener, Picture This, explores Mad Dance Aesthetic through a storytelling view and was created collaboratively with members of Psychiatric Survivors of Ottawa and The Royal.

Gilad Hekselman Trio - Homes
"Gilad Hekselman has a vision of modern jazz that's harmonically fluent but not averse to simple melody or gentle, approachable effect." - The New York Times.
Hekselman has been developing a reputation as one of the most promising guitarists in New York since his arrival in 2004. In his latest album, Ask for Chaos, this acclaimed guitarist takes a bold new turn, inspired by two new and quite disparate trio configurations. Hekselman sequenced the new album with the two trios interspersed, resulting in sonic surprise but also a seamless aesthetic unity. The gHex Trio is giving a whole new dimension to the music.
Playing Friday at the Jazz fest!
