Fujiwara Dance Inventions (Canada)
March 19-22, 2014
ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE
Dancer and choreographer Denise Fujiwara is one of the most inventive dance artists in Canada. During 35 years of practice, she’s refined an approach to performance that draws on research with teachers as diverse as butoh master Natsu Nakajima, Canadian Judy Jarvis and SITI Company’s Anne Bogart. From solos to her more recent ensemble works, Fujiwara’s dance is marked with humour and pathos, virtuosic detail and riveting attentiveness.
World Stage is proud to present the world premiere of Fujiwara’s new work,EUNOIA, an adaptation of Griffin Poetry Prize-winner Christian Bök’s celebrated poem of the same name. In Bök’s Eunoia, each chapter is constrained to the use of a single vowel and despite this, he is able to create oddly fascinating worlds. With exacting precision, Fujiwara adapts these formal rules into her own dance and allows them to transform her choreography. The result is a witty and absorbing monument to human expression.

In a Time Crunch?
When it comes to productions and performances, the earlier you begin to build your publicity and marketing strategy, the better. While typically, we recommend initiating a publicity and marketing plan at least three months in advance, we know that sometimes plans change, and you may find yourself a month or two away from opening night, without a concrete strategy. This is where DUO can help.
We offer a comprehensive and affordable selection of publicity and marketing services (incl. social media management) tailored to meet your project needs and timeline. For more information, or to set up a free consultation, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

Robert Glumbek and Kevin O’Day

Kevin O’Day (Ballett Nationtheater Mannheim), examine their own lives.
“Kevin and Robert are powerful dancers whose presence and technique draw you into their art. Their masterful duets give you insight into the years of experience that each have. This is sure to be an incredible performance!”
