"Often Moyes is deliciously realistic, rendering Florence's dialogue like a charade, but she also has the gift of giving physical emphasis to certain words or phrases that makes one gasp with delight."
"Moyes’ interdisciplinary fusion of film and live dance is deliciously droll – her witty brand of docu-dance defines the Newfoundlander’s penchant for self-deprecating humour....As a mover, Moyes is clean, precise and lyrical, with a filigreed delicacy of gesture.The dance sections are clever. ..This richly layered piece is a delight from start to finish,and Lori Clarke’s and Delf Hohmann’s music captures the gentle irony of the work."
Louise Moyes performs one-woman 'docu-dances': humourous, multi-disciplinary, bilingual shows created from documentary-style interviews.
Growing up a Newfoundlander of Cockney parentage who later lived in Quebec, Louise developed a fascination for accents, gestures, and other distinguishing cultural features. While travelling she records conversations with ordinary people and edits a script from the recordings, playing up to 20 different characters in a performance. Her quirky vignettes are both funny and biting.
