Cloud 9, produced by MOonhORsE Dance Theatre, raises the artform to new heights in commissioned works by Lina Cruz and DA Hoskins for some of Canada’s most revered older dancers.
Lina Cruz’s Room #7 is a space-time for three intriguing females, evolving as characters of a comic strip. Legendary performers Louise Bédard, Karen Kaeja, and Claudia Moore are a territorial trio, revealing themselves as unusual heroines claiming the right to their small chaotic world, a world including their stage confidant, musician-performer Philippe Noireaut.
DA Hoskins, an artist who thrives on the vitality and expressive immediacy of dance, creates a potent reflection of the self, personally and collectively, in Bird Nesting in Fingers in Bloom. Powerful and poetic, DA’s quartet for Cloud 9 is a wordless collision of experience that binds the players’ bodies in a sharing of understanding, a wisdom that renders the illuminations of the self, tactile.
