The Dance Centre’s 2013-2014 Global Dance Connections contemporary dance series opens with a vividly theatrical new solo performed by the inventive France-based choreographer Pedro Pauwels.
Sors (Get Out) is a new solo inspired by the German expressionist pioneer Mary Wigman’s legendary 1914 solo Witch Dance. Pauwels commissioned four very different choreographers of international renown – 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 style and unexpected humour.
