Brrrr…come in from the cold! What better way to spend a cold winter evening than in the company of your friends and some great dance!
Tonight and tomorrow night you still have a chance to see James Gnam and Jacques Poulin-Denis of Montreal’s Grand Poney in two companion solos. Gnam’s creation James, co-created with SuFe -Lee, traces one man’s journey from boyhood to manhood through his relationship with the North American ballet classic, The Nutcracker. Target of God exposes the personal turmoil of an ill-fated anti-hero. With a humorous twirl, the planets align and the stage is set for a catastrophic transition. Target of God has toured internationally to critical acclaim and is the brain child of Quebec interdisciplinary dance artist Jacques Poulin-Denis of Montreal’s Grand Poney.
