The docudance St. John's Women presents in dance, film, photo, and theatre the lives of three St. John's women from three decades: their city, their generations, and their hearts. Great stories about growing up in St. John's and the city we love.

                                Concept, choreography and performance: Louise Moyes

                                Interviewees: Ashley Kapoor, Louise, Kay Haynes

                                Here’s what the press had to say:

St. John’s Women

“Moyes’ interdisciplinary fusion is deliciously droll – her witty brand of docu-dance...about memories of growing up in St. John’s is clever...As a mover, Moyes is clean, precise and lyrical, with a filigreed delicacy of gesture. This richly layered piece is a delight from start to finish.“ Paula Citron The Globe and Mail

“St. John’s Women” is a piece…. (about) the things that concern us all— home, work, having fun, illness, faith. It has a candid appeal… very open, very straightforward.” Joan Sullivan, The Telegram
