An unbelievable year of doing what I love - touring 6 cities in Mexico with our work, a UK commission that travelled Europe for 4 months, teaching and performing in Japan and wrapping with 2 weeks of a Toronto season with Kaeja and Cloud 9. I am honoured that Crave was just nominated with 4 Dora awards and am thrilled for the other nominees and the whole dance community in its incredible endeavours. Toronto is a bustling and courageous dance haven. - Karen
