The Dance Centre presents the Global Dance Connections Series: Compagnie Pedro Pauwels Sors


Compagnie Pedro Pauwels Sors
(+ post-show artist talkback)

Saturday September 21, 8pm
Scotiabank Dance Centre
677 Davie St

Presented through an exchange partnership between The Dance Centre and the Quartiers Danses festival produced by Transatlantique Montréal

Born in Belgium and now based in France, Pedro Pauwels has built a reputation as an inventive choreographer and arresting performer. Sors (Get Out) is a new solo inspired by German expressionist pioneer Mary Wigman's legendary 1914 solo Witch Dance. Pauwels commissioned four very different choreographers - Japan's Carlotta Ikeda, South Africa's Robyn Orlin and France's Josef Nadj and Jerome Thomas - to create with him a striking contemporary vision of a present-day sorcerer, which conveys the passionate intensity of the original with vivid theatricality and unexpected humour. www.cie-pedropauwels.fr  www.quartiersdanses.com

Pedro Pauwels is presented through an ongoing exchange partnership between Transatlantique Montreal and The Dance Centre, which since 2008 has facilitated the presentation of BC-based artists at the Quartiers Danses Festival, and brought artists from the Festival to perform in Vancouver.
