A nationally renowned choreographed performance of Farfadet’s Last Round is coming to the Gas Station Theatre on Wednesday, November 3.
The play debuted in Quebec last fall and has been widely received, giving much praise to choreographers Brice Noeser of France and Sharon B. Moore of Toronto.
Noeser has become known for developing a particular and quirky gesture aesthetic specific to his long, linear, angular body. He enjoys playing with unconventional body mechanisms, and is interested in sculpting a gesture motivated by a visceral and animal energy. His sensibility is an excellent pairing with Moore, whose work is known for its lushly detailed movement and emotionally moving narrative fusing superb theatrical invention with ferocious action. Deeply rooted in modern dance, her work has evolved through cross-pollination of performance disciplines and by her creative partnership with Opera/Theatre Director Derek Aasland.
Tickets to the show are $22 ($19 for students) through TicketWeb.ca or at the door for $25 and $22.
Following Winnipeg, Farfadet will be presented in Montreal on November 6, followed by Quebec City on November 9.
