Randy Glynn Dance Project

Choreography Randy Glynn

Dancers: Phil Roy, Georgia Skinner, Maria Osende, Randy Glynn

Choreographer, dancer, teacher and Founding Artistic Director of Festival of Dance Annapolis Royal,  RANDY GLYNN has been a recognized figure in the world of Canadian Contemporary Dance for almost 40 years. A critically acclaimed principal dancer with the legendary Danny Grossman Company Randy formed his own company, The Randy Glynn Dance Project in 1987. Works among his critically acclaimed choreography include: Mr. Pinhead, After Godot and Dancing in the Third Act. Randy’s choreography has been produced and presented by major companies in Canada, Ireland and the US. A Dora Mavor Moore Award nominee. As well, he is a recipient of the prestigious Clifford E. Lee Choreography Award. Randy is also the Artistic Director of Halifax-based Live Art Dance Productions.

Built entirely on ballroom dance vocabulary, the highly entertaining Mr. Pinhead premiered in 1995 and explores themes that continue to resonate today. “The work was initially inspired by a dream I had of a tall lone man with a small head walking in an empty city street, explains Randy.  However, the work evolved into something  quite different from the dream and dealt more with Pinhead’s redemption than with his lonely dream situation. 

The tone of the dance was heavily influenced by the 983 film “Le Bal” directed by Ettore Scola. “It is a linear story dance, one of several that I made over the years. Contemporary dance does not often do linear story dances but the form appealed to me and I used it several times.”

“You will be amazed by Glynn’s vision and feeling, his ability to dignify and deepen ordinary experience.” The Globe and Mail
