Chutzpah!PLUS & The Dance Centre
Sidra Bell Dance New York
Back at Chutzpah! after last year's riveting performances, Sidra Bell Dance New York returns with STELLA and Garment in a co-presentation with The Dance Centre.
The New York Times says, "Ms. Bell has a lot working in her favor: powerful, daredevil dancers and an almost garish imagination capable of dreaming up surreal scenarios... a slick intensity dominates her onstage worlds."
Her provocative, unconventional work is elegant, fantastical and darkly romantic. "It's as if Bell is a grandchild of Bausch...dark, probing and sometimes sarcastic; it expresses that which cannot be expressed in words," says NYC Dance Stuff.
"Stella is not a linear work but snapshots and scenes of the working of Bell's creative process. If you try to compare this work with some other than you have missed the importance and intelligence of the piece. One must experience Bell's work with an open mind. She is exploring uncharted territories ... [and reshaping] the landscape of dance. NYC Dance Stuff
Her critically acclaimed company and choreography has been seen throughout the United States and internationally in Denmark, France, Austria, Turkey, Germany, China, Canada, Aruba, Korea, Brazil and Greece. Bell has received many commissions for new work from internationally renowned companies and institutions around the world.
"Bell's dance-theatre works are intensely physical, concentrated and mysterious, yet they reveal the inner aspects of the performers with startling clairity" The Atlantic Journal Constitution
"Fearless technically honed dancers" The Georgia Straight
"Bell is dearly an artist in this new generation of modern dance movers who combines arresting movement with dramatic presentation" Harlem World
