Fortier Danse-Création and WCD are excitied to announce the addition of Paul-André Fortier’s THIN ICE to our January 21st to 23rd performances of MISFIT BLUES at The Rachel Browne Theatre.
WCD’s co-presentation with Fortier Danse-Création of Paul-André Fortier’s Manitoba Premiere of MISFIT BLUES and the remount of THIN ICE.Sublime misfits, Fortier and Regina’s incandescent Robin Poitras, get wild and silly in an ‘intoxicating ride through the incomprehensible abstractions and piercing truths of two people experiencing themselves as a unity.’ —BWW Review by Matt Hanson.
Thin Ice was created in January 2015 with two graduating students from the Professionnal Program of the School of Contemporary Dancers in Winnipeg in response to an invitation from Robin Poitras for her Men in Dance Festival held in Regina.
Fortier Danse-Création is remounting Thin Ice in Winnipeg in collaboration with the School of Contemporary Dancers. Aaron Paul, a graduate of the professional program and Trevor Pick, 3rd year student, will perform the piece in a double bill program with Misfit Blues. The evening will be co-presented by Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers and Fortier Danse-Création.
