Me & Josephine | City | Halifax, Nova Scotia | THE COAST

While wordy but worthy wordsmith Graham Pilsworth and I disagreed mightily on the merit of Daniel MacIvor’s “Wild Abandon”, we definitely agree on Leslie’s Carvery’s “Me and Josephine”. Carvery has that illusive “it”. She’s a star in need of a vehicle and while the story of entertainer extraordinaire Josephine Baker may well fit the bill, this multi-media/dance incarnation of said story is too slight to satisfy. But don’t let that stop you from catching one of the last two shows. Carvery’s sparkling personality and sensuous dance style make this a pleasant way to pass an hour.

Show Times: Saturday Sept. 6 at 8pm and Sunday Sept. 7 at 4:00 at DANSpace. $10.
