As part of its 2014 North American tour, Infinithéâtre presents the Ryuzanji Company production of Hanafuda Denki.
Set in downtown Tokyo, during the Taisho Period (1912-1926), in a funeral parlour called the House of the Dead. Here the dead live their after-lives in peaceful harmony until the day the beautiful and impetuous Karuta falls in love with a dashing young man, the famous thief Kitaro of the Graveyard. This is not only ironic, it is also an unacceptable love affair. Kitaro has a serious character defect, unfortunately he is still counted among the living. This is unacceptable to her family, the dead funeral director Danjuro and his equally dead wife, Ohaka. They insist she marry a respectable young man, one who has already crossed the river into the world of the dead.

MIND/BODY TRAINING: A FREE INTRODUCTORY CLASS TAUGHT BY TEDI TAFEL IN MONTREAL ON SATURDAY DECEMBER 14
Tue 26 Nov, 2013 - Workshops
Well-known Montreal choreographer and movement instructor Tedi Tafel is offering a free introductory class to interest the community in a unique training methodology
MIND/BODY. If this work is for you, you are welcome to continue your
practice, guided by Tedi, in her ongoing, drop-in classes starting in January.
MIND/BODY is an energetic, dynamic and rigorous movement ‘workout’ that demands a keen kinesthetic sensitivity and moment-to-moment consciousness. It encourages strength, endurance, efficiency, openness and increased grounding in the body. The training builds the student’s capacity to sustain full and present engagement, while also maintaining precision to detail, expanded awareness and ease of execution. It uses the entire body in multiple and increasingly complex co-ordination and rhythm patterns.
