WAG! Is a terpsichorean comedy of tragic proportions – a mosaic of highly personal moments told in Denise Clarke’s signature style. Blending monologue and movement, we are witness to the candid reveal of Clarke’s recent past: cold, in the middle of an icy park, and mourning one thing and now another. It would be tragic stuff if it weren’t for the invention of the ‘Cheering Up Program’; a playlist, a dance, and a way of life that ultimately delivers “resolution, not closure.” With a quintessentially Rabbit flavour and tone, WAG! Is a balm for your heart, a kick in the pants, and essential viewing from this seminal artist, the recent recipient of an honorary doctorate from the University of Calgary.
