Cheremosh Ukrainian Company is keeping a traditional art form fresh after 40 years.

The local dance group will be transforming the Edmonton Expo Centre into a multidisciplinary artistic and cultural celebration, according to producer Jason Golinowski.

“This one is unique because it’s our 40th anniversary and because we’re collaborating with two other artists on this show,” Golinowski said.

“It will be something to remember once it’s all finished.”

Malcolm Forsyth, Juno Award-winning composer, has taken some of Cheremosh’s music from the past 40 years and created an original overture, which will be played by Edmonton’s Mill Creek Colliery Band.

“The audiences seem to be responding to what we’re doing and we have interest from the performer side as well,” Golinowski said. “Just reinventing some of our scenes and dabbling in some of these other art forms is good and healthy to the creative process.”

The Art of Cheremosh Gala takes place Oct. 30.
