Christine Fellows

Christine Fellows finds music in sounds we tend to take for granted: the voices of the people we love, the sounds of the spaces we move through as part of our daily lives. Fellows is based in Winnipeg, where she collaborates with artists from all disciplines to create and produce performance works and recordings. In 2018, she released her 7 th solo album, Roses on the Vine.
Fellows has created scores for choreographic works by Susie Burpee, Brent Lott, and Lesandra Dodson; she and Dodson are currently collaborating with Montreal dancers Marc Boivin and Elise Vanderborght on a new work. She is thrilled to be collaborating with Jasmine Ellis on this

Ksenia Broda-Milian  

Lighting design

Ksenia is glad to do her first show with WCD! A longtime student of the School of Contemporary Dancers’ pre-professional and intensive programs, she loves when that experience can inform her practice. Other training comes from the University of Alberta (MFA) and University of Winnipeg (BAH), Off the Wall Artist’s Alliance, Ghost River Theatre, Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, and Creative Manitoba. This season she has worked on productions by Winnipeg Studio Theatre/Village Conservatory, Winnipeg Jewish Theatre, University of Winnipeg, and RMTC as an assistant, and designer on the upcoming Lawyer Show, Mamma Mia. Thanks to my parents for their support, and to Jasmine and Martina for inviting me to collaborate!
