Hobos and Vagabonds

vagabondshobo

“Swing du businessman” preview show by Swing Connexion at the event “Dig Tha Feet 2013”, featuring Myriam Baril, Randy Panté & Zack Richard – “the Hobo Routine”.

Working on this routine with Zack and Myriam as one piece of of our show was a real joy simply because we got to work on our hobo characters as well as our dance choreography. Growing up, I was never one of those artsy students who did drama or music. Computers, video games, and ninjas were pretty much all I ever thought about until I started dancing in university. So it was painful at first trying to come up with this routine because I didn’t really get what I was supposed to be doing versus what I already do anyways. Am I a dancer playing a hobo or a a real life vagabond playing a dancer?

I guess a little bit of both?

W-Project, New Angles, and Followlogie 2012

I did something a little bit different and filmed from the back of the room this time for Followlogie 2012 cabaret competitions. While it was neat to see a performance from the other side and to see the crowd’s reaction, playing it back just feels a bit off. In any case, lesson learned, next time I’ll head for the front of the crowd.

This is the routine of the cabaret winners by the “W-Project” girls here in Montreal. I’m a bit biased but this was definitely kickass (although all the performances were great!).
