Cathy Levy chats with NAC Associate Dance Artist Tedd Robinson, choreographer and artistic director of 10 Gates Dancing Inc, and composer Charles Quevillon on the eve of the NAC presentation and premiere of their latest creation Love & Other Things… a drama for flower, clay and bone. The two met in 2010 when Tedd was commissioned to produce a work for LADMMI and while Charles was at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal. They have since collaborated on over 20 works. The conversation touches on creative highlights, the genesis and concept for this new work and how it was influenced by Charles’ three-month residency in Japan where he studied with Yoshito Ohno, and Tedd’s lifelong obsession with Madame Butterfly. The May 26 to June 1st performances, to be accompanied by a graphic novel written by Tedd, were preceded by a two-week residency in the Alan & Roula Rossy Pavilion supported by NAC Dance.
