Haiku Canada’s Weekend got us on our feet to applaud Marco Fraticelli and Terry Ann Carter’s fabulous performance of Desire: The haiku and lost letters of Chiyo-ni: music, words, dance introducing me to an 18th century extraordinary female haiku “master.” Chiyo-ni , woodcut by Utagawa Kuniyoshi Whitehorse is bursting with art. Murals on buildings. Jazz musicians, playwrights, paper-makers, poets… like dogs, part of the family.
