Governor General Award Winner Margie Gillis comes to LFAS

Margie Gillis, a world-renowned dancer and choreographer, came to LFAS as part of the Arts Matter lecture series, teaching and performing with the Senior Dance Majors, as well as speaking to all the Senior Majors, and performing for the greater community that night.

Reporter Grace Kennedy interviewed Ms. Gillis on her ideas about dance, and about her view of arts in the world.

“Margie Gillis is a really interesting person to talk to and listen to,” Grace said about the interview. “She is very eloquent with her speech, and talks the way she dances. She talks around the question, and I noticed this especially in her talk with all the majors on the Friday. She might not directly answer your question, but the path she takes is so much more interesting.

“The fact that she came and talked to all the majors about dance was great, I think, because it is such a foreign concept to a lot of non-dance majors. It was like being privy to another culture and way of life, and, for many of us, was enlightening. Also, what she said about the audience experiencing the same neuro-transmissions as the dancers was super cool.

“Really, the whole experience was fascinating, and I am so glad that I got a chance to listen and interview Margie Gillis. The fact that a world-renowned Canadian dancer and choreographer actually took the time to come and talk to us is beyond amazing.”
