John, choreographed by Helen Walkley, is a memoir of Helen’s oldest brother, John, who disappeared from Vancouver in May of 1969, never to be heard from again.

Crimson Coast Dance is honoured to bring this touching story to the Malaspina Theatre January 22, 7:30pm

"Helen Walkley's work John is a transcendent piece of work. Every detail of it has been carefully and ritualistically planned. Walkley is a magician of dance, her movement is like a sleight of hand, it shimmers with significance and quiet
intensity. It is at once awe-inspiring and nuanced. There are no tricks, no savvy
smart stage craft here- John is a piece that is rough hewn- it comes from a deep
soulful source, years of skilled hard work, and patient endurance. Walkley is a
true artist. She creates rare honest work that echoes in your mind and heart long after you have left the theater. Her work is extraordinary." 
~ Wendy vanden Heuvel
