Event Details

Local professional dance company, Votive Dance brings a brand new show, Whodunit?, packed with original jazz dance & live music.

Votive Dance has brought together Nova Scotian talent from across disciplines for this fun, engaging, and mysterious evening of entertainment. Artistic Director & Choreographer, Kathleen Doherty has worked alongside Composer & Band Leader, Andrew Jackson, and Storyline & Character Development Collaborator, Katelyn McCulloch, to create a Jazz-driven night of dance, music and storytelling.

Whodunit? features local professional dance artists: Isaac Abriel, Marrin Jessome, Michele King, Stephanie Mitro & Liliona Quarmyne, with guest performer, tap dancer: MacKenzie Greenwell. The incredible band includes: Keith Doiron (bass), Andrew Jackson (trombone), Caito MacDonald (drums) & Sam Wilson (guitar).

“I have been wanting to make large scale jazz dance show for a while, and this idea of a murder mystery seemed to go hand in hand in my mind,” says Doherty. “I’ve been working in the studio with the dancers since January to develop choreography which is grounded, rooted, rhythmic, and musical in itself. The live music brings such a high energy to the performance, and the music composed by Andrew is absolutely incredible. Having all of the elements for this show come together, through dance, music and storytelling, has been a blast to build and create.”
