On the occasion of the November 2016 National Arts Centre presentation of Fractus V by Eastman, Dr. Yana Meerzon, Associate Professor in the Department of Theatre at the University of Ottawa, chats with Guy Cools, Belgian dance dramaturge and author of the books In-Between Dance Cultures: On the Migratory Artistic Identity of Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Arkam Khan and The Ethics of Arts: ecological turns in the performing arts. The conversation touches on the role of dance dramaturge, the ark of the creation process of Sidi Larbi that led him to Fractus V, some of his associations, collaborations and influences including Alain Platel’s Les Ballets C. de la B., María Pagés, Antony Gormley, Patricia Bovi, and the Royal Ballet of Flanders, and on Guy’s two written works.
