Choreographer and Artistic Director Paras Terezakis will explore the realms of paradise and enlightenment with the world premiere of his experimental work In PENUMBRA, March 1-4, 2017 at the Scotiabank Dance Centre – as part of 2017 Vancouver International Dance Festival. A co-presentation with The Dance Centre, In PENUMBRA will mark the milestone 30th anniversary of Kinesis Dance somatheatro while celebrating Terezakis as a major force for creativity in Vancouver’s arts scene.
“I’m immensely proud of In PENUMBRA,” says Terezakis, Artistic Director and Choreographer of Kinesis Dance. “It’s a significant triumph for my company, and I can think of no better way to mark this anniversary. There’s no more radical state than that of perfection, and humankind pays dearly for this ever-elusive ideal. What price will we pay to achieve it? We find both glories and horrors, bliss and pain along the route to its end. Through it all, we’ve had art. I feel utopia is humanity’s biggest aspiration, and I’m trying to put forth a work that honours it in terms of adventurousness. I’m using the best means I know: motion, light, symbolism, gesture, touch and a fascination with the theatre of the human psyche.”
