International Dance Day is April 29th and the province is celebrating Dance Week from April 22-29 I'm sure you'll be inspired to dance by Charles Henry Danielle and memories of the annual Peace-A-Chord in Bannerman Park. Do you know who Charles Henry Danielle was? Do you remember the Peace-A-Chord?
Uber-talented students, Erin Normandeau and Heather Rumancik, from Memorial's Diploma in Communications and Performance Media have creatively shed some light on the above awesome-ness. With support from Memorial's Quick Start Fund, mentoring from NIFCO (thank you Brad Gover!) and access to the Performing Arts Collection (PAC) here at the QEII's Archives and Special Collections, these talented emerging filmmakers created two amazing, entertaining and informative short films about our province's eccentric dance master and hotelier as well as the youth driven festival the Peace-A-Chord.
Check out the Archived Alive! website
