In Full House (1987), Ginette Laurin, founder and artistic director of O Vertigo Danse, reaches back into her childhood to recover images of the late 1950s and early 1960s that are both personal and universal. This work is generously laced with subtle humour and the dance evokes the Hollywood technicolour movies of the period. The program also features an excerpt from her work Crash Landing (1984).
MOZE MOSSANEN (writer, director, producer)
Moze Mossanen is one of Canada's pre-eminent directors of dance film dramas whose work has been honoured by many
awards and shown around the world. His first dramatic shorts, Illegal Acts and Canciones, brought him to the attention
of the CBC where he directed his feature-length documentary film Dance for Modern Times. The film was released
theatrically, nominated for a Genie Award and won the Chris Award at the Columbus International Film Festival.
Other works include The Golden City and My Gentleman Friends, both of which received Gemini nominations for directing
and writing, respectively. My Gentleman Friends, a 72-minute television drama, was singled out by The Globe & Mail as
one of the outstanding dramatic programs of the 1999 season.
In recent years, Moze has created a body of popular and critically acclaimed work that has included a unique blend
of drama, music and dance. These films include: The Rings of Saturn (CBC/Bravo!); Year of the Lion, a contemporary
adaptation of the novel Dangerous Liaisons, which won three Gemini Awards and the Jury Prize at the Yorkton Film Festival
(CBC/Bravo!); From Time to Time, nominated for three Gemini Awards (CBC/Bravo!); Roxana, an adaptation of the
novel by Daniel Defoe, winner of two Golden Sheaf awards, the CSC Award for Cinematography and two Gemini
Awards; and, mostly recently, the dance-drama Nureyev (Bravo!/CTV), which earned six Gemini Award nominations
and for which Moze received the award for Best Direction in a Performing Arts Program or Series.
