"Karen Kaeja's gorgeous Wedding Threads, a lush piece about mother-daughter relationships" -- Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival, May and End of May Newsletters by Marie Davis Zimmerman

Click here for a feature interview on Wedding Threads in the latest GCDF newsletter.

Part of the Site Specific Series presented by the Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival, this glorious intergenerational cast of six women and five youth including Karen's daughter Mika, return to a landscape with luscious imagery that captures the hearts of many. Originally commissioned by Dusk Dances, the performance reveals the inevitable hopes, dreams and magical ties between these generations of women. Flooded in white, Wedding Threads brings alive the relationship between women and their daughters.
