Daybreak Again: May 4/5, 2013
The Cirque du Soleil show, Amaluna, has been packing in audiences under their big top in Calgary and it moves on the Edmonton, starting on May 29th. The show invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by Goddesses. Their queen, Prospera, is directing her daughter's coming-of-age ceremony in a rite that honours femininity, renewal, rebirth and balance and the event marks the passing of insights and values from one generation to the next. There is also a love story but it's threatened by evil forces. Andreanne Nadeau is one of the performers in Amaluna as an aerialist, and one of three valkyries, high-flying warriors. She spoke with Russell Bowers about her travelling and performing life.
In 1989, Sergei Pryakhin became the first Russian player to be allowed to play in the NHL. He joined at the right time, as he suited up for the Calgary Flames and was a part of their Stanley Cup winning team that season. His journey to the NHL was partly paved by other Soviet-block players who longed for freedom and a chance to play with the world's best. In a new book, Breakaway, Tal Pinchevsky traces the history of hockey behind the Iron Cutain, and how a few brave players like Alexander Mogilny risked imprisonment or worse, to defect to the West. Tal Pinchevsky has written extensively about hockey over the last 10 years for ESPN, Rolling Stone and the New York Times. He's currently a writer for NHL.com.
