Quartiers Danses Festival - Opening night

Cinquième salle September 7, 2018

Trained at the prestigious Alvin Ailey School in New York and at the Houston Ballet Academy, Roderick George has won several choreographic prizes and has danced for several internationally-renowned choreographers, including the great WIlliam Forsythe. His contemporary creations mix virtuosic technique, urban spirit, and hip hop energy with the aesthetic and discipline of contemporary ballet, generating agile and rapid movements.

DUST – Roderick George, kNoname Artist, Berlin, Montreal premiere
In this uniquely masculine quartet, the human being becomes a particle living on planet Earth and evolves due to cultural, social and familial interactions, which can be artificial, instinctual, or animal.

Fleshless Beast – Roderick George, kNoname Artist, Berlin, Montreal premiere
This sextet interrogates questions of gender, skin colour, immigration, and globalization. What would our lives be without these characteristics that determine who we are?
