Event Details

Women in White is a group work by dance artist Kara Nolte. The work is about sisterhood, the unique, heartening and transcendent bond that unites anyone who identifies as a woman, compliance and rebellion within the intimate relationships we create. Through movement, text and song, the work uses an all female cast and chairs as props to support the story and character development.

Women in White was originally explored with a trio of artists in Vancouver, BC at Mascall Dance’s mentorship series Bloom under the mentorship of choreographer Jennifer Mascall. This residency and showing period took place in May/June 2015 and used the title o.la.more 3. It was presented as a 5 minute work in progress to three separate audiences over three weeks.

o.la.more 3 was originally an off-shoot of the solo work o.la.more choreographed and performed by Kara Nolte, and once it was established as a separate work it was given the name Women in White.

The work was presented at the Ignite! Festival for Emerging Artists Dance Series in Calgary AB. It was shown as a 12 minute work with a new trio of artists at the Pumphouse Theatre in June 2016.

Kara is a dance artist living in Calgary that is interested in combining movement, text and song. She is focused on creating playful work that connects individuals and shifts how we see the world and each other.
