Ne.Sans Opera & Dance
Presented by the BC Movement Arts Society
A dance quartet set to Piano Études of the celebrated Jewish composer Philip Glass, one of the most innovative and influential composers of the late 20th century. Choreographed by Ne.Sans Opera & Dance Artistic Director Idan Cohen, this series of miniature études comprises spectacular gems hidden within Glass’ body of work. Hourglass explores the passage of time with an ensemble of dancers that represents a wealth of knowledge that needs to be seen, both as a response to current times, and as a compelling elucidation of Glass’ intent.
SOLO FOR ORPHEUS
A solo with live accordion that draws inspiration from the myth of Orpheus, and Gluck’s opera Orfeo ed Euridice. Choreographed by Idan Cohen and Performed by Ted Littlemore, renowned contemporary dancer, musician, and drag queen.
