NEW DANCE COLLECTION DANSE EXHIBITION
GUEST CURATOR: KATELYN ROUGHLEY
Maud Allan’s story reads like a modern-day tabloid … filled with libel suits, murder and tempestuous love affairs. A provocative and charismatic dancer, Maud was renowned for her unique “dance interpretations” and her scandalous Salomé costume – showcased here for the first time following a two-year conservation project. Peppered with memorabilia ranging from cigarette silks to coffee tins, this exhibition takes visitors back in time to Edwardian London’s “Salomania” craze. Join DCD in uncovering the life and times of Canada’s best-kept dance secret – Maud Allan – who plummeted from international stardom into obscurity.
