On the menu
Finding influences in the 1964 Japanese film Seven Samurai , in which warriors must regain their spark when forced to work together to survive, the play embodies the iconic style of Gadfly, which is rooted in the physical aspect of urban and contemporary dances, as well as the balance between creativity and entertainment.
Choreographers – Artistic Directors: Apolonia Velasquez and Ofilio Sinbadinho
Ör Pür (Montréal)
Simply fiction of the imagination or is it reality and ultimately fate? Do we have power over the Zodiak or is it the power of the Zodiak that defines us?
Choreographer – Artistic Director: Cindy Mc Auliffe
