In late June, Regina will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1912 Regina Cyclone that cut quite a swath through the city from Wascana Lake north to the Warehouse District.
One of the events that’s being planned is called The Tornado Project. It’s a collaboration of number of public organizations, including the MacKenzie Art Gallery, Saskatchewan Science Centre, Dunlop Art Gallery and Swift Current Windscape Art Festival, and will explore the cyclone and its legacy from an artistic, scientific and historical perspective.
Tuesday night, New Dance Horizons is hosting a fundraiser at Artesian on 13th to support its involvement in The Tornado Project. Spring Prelude will feature performances by Canadian dance icon Margie Gillis (pictured), along NDH artistic director Robin Poitras. Also involved are Ramses Calderon, Robyn Morin, Theodore Bison, Richie Pollack, Daniella Beltrami, Sonia Kalburgi, Cameron Lowe, Descalso, Darke Hall 5 and more.
Doors are at 6:30 p.m., and the event will run until 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $50 and can be obtained by calling 525-5393.
