Choreographer, dancer and teacher, Randy Glynn has been an influential figure in the world of Canadian contemporary dance for over three decades. He is currently Artistic Director of Festival of Dance Annapolis Royal and Live Art Dance (Halifax).
Premiered in 1995, Mr. Pinhead is built entirely on ballroom dance vocabulary. It is the coming-of-age story of a timid young ballroom dancer, his overbearing parents and his triumphant escape from their grasp. Acclaimed by audiences and critics for its innovation and entertaining approach to its subject matter, Mr. Pinhead’s themes still resonate today.
“You will be amazed by Glynn’s vision and feeling, his ability to dignify and deepen ordinary experience.” The Globe and Mail
