Featuring the work of James Kudelka
Composed of 11 of Canada's finest dancers, this extraordinary company brings to life "In Paradisum"; a program highlighting the work of former National Ballet of Canada choreographer James Kudelka, recognized as one of North America's foremost dance artist and for his remarkable talent in combining classical tradition and modern movement.

The performance will feature a revival of Kudelka's masterful contemporary ballet Fifteen Heterosexual Duets (originally created for Toronto Dance Theatre), set to Beethoven's "Kreutzer" Sonata, winner of a Dora Mavor Moore Award and praised as "a jewel" by the New York Times. The work explores "amorous emotion from passion to tenderness to humor" (Times Argus) and features duets that are "remarkable for their fluency and variety" (The Globe and Mail). The program will also include Kudelka's Soudain, l'hiver dernier, a stunning and troubling male duet, that leaves the spectator "spellbound by the emotional drama on the stage" (The Gazette, Montreal) and In Paradisum an "outpouring of movement invention", a "maelstrom of anguish, grief and acceptance" (The New York Times), a masterpiece of emotional power and technical brilliance.

Saturday, November 10 & Sunday, November 11 at 7:30 PM.
Tickets: $35-$20 at www.theatreraymondkabbaz.com
