Pour toured extensively in 2017 and 2018, travelling to Paris, Marseille, Helsinki, Stavanger and Bergen (Norway), Vancouver, Barcelona and Madrid, Prague and Brussels. Prior to appearing at Agora de la danse in 2019, the show will be presented in Toronto and at La Rotonde in Quebec City.
The piece has attracted a lot of attention, and praise from critics. The journalist Rose Carine Henriquez wrote on the Nevros’arts website that “The images invoked by Ashbee are striking and well wrought, and resonate with the spectator. […] The challenges of this solo piece have been brilliantly addressed, with a strength that befits the subject matter.”
In 2016, Daina Ashbee was a double prize winner at the Prix de la danse de Montréal, winning both the Agora/Tangente Emerging Artist Award and the CALQ award for Best Choreography for WHEN THE ICE MELTS, WILL WE DRINK THE WATER?, presented at Agora in 2017. After that performance, the dancer Esther Gaudette received the RDQ Best Performance award in 2017, and that same year Paige Culley received the Prix de la danse de Montréal Emerging Artist award for her performance in Pour.
