SOLO 70: a dance by a man with a long dance history
July 7 and 8 @ 8pm Scotiabank Dance Centre
Building on his peripatetic dance career, Fortier is reinventing the solowith a magical soundtrack marked by traces of Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendrix, delvinginto the heart of memory and the unknown. An original script by Étienne Lepage is spoken, muttered,shouted and whispered by actor Étienne Pilon, who slips seamlessly into the dancer’s very being. Ages and experiences merge and the future becomes one with the past, yet everything is in the present tense.
