The universes of four contemporary choreographers find echoes in each other in this audacious mixed bill, exploring different aspects of our collective and individual subconsciousness. Ultraviolet investigates through different lenses the hidden motives behind our actions. Shedding light on the shadows living within us, dance becomes the vector of radiant revelations.
Vancouver-based artist Lesley Telford, who spent years with the Nederland Dans Theater, presents the piece Beguile. The choreographer explores interconnectivity, the influence we have on others and the influence others have on our individuality. Are we really independent beings?
Principal dancer at the company, Roddy Doble has choreographed a breathtaking pas de deux called Crater and set on Johann Sebastian Bach’s Marcello concerto.
Canadian choreographer Kristen Céré has distinguished herself notably at Nederlands Dans Theater and is interested in the complexity and depth of human emotion. Delightful Disruption attempts to investigate the fragile and dark regions within us longing for light. In this intimate creation, Céré uses movement to explore a way of navigating through visceral and raw expression while taking a closer look at the shadow within.
Australian choreographer Cass Mortimer Eipper is driven by an exploration of alternate realities. With Substrat, he reflects on the growing hybridization of beings as digital devices become an extension of humanity.
