We’re thrilled to be kicking off Evergreen Brick Work’s Sunday Performing Arts series on Sunday August 12. We’re bringing our resident choreographer James Kudelka’s remarkable Soudain l’hiver dernier – a dance for two men explores variations on the theme of not failing someone. Lifting or supporting a body always implies some kind of trust, distilling this bedrock faith. Filled with symbols of male strength, and also male reliance, the movement embodies the notion that these are two solitudes that both border and protect each other.
The Toronto Star called the work “deeply compassionate” and The Globe and Mail said: “Kudelka’s dense choreographic layering…means an iceberg’s worth of subtext. Each performer gives us tantalizing glimpses into the new work.” The work was originally created for Montréal Danse in 1987.
Soudain l’hiver dernier will be performed by Andrew McCormack and Irvin Chow from Citadel + Compagnie. The 18-minute performance will run twice on Sunday, August 12, at 11am and 12:30pm.
