Description (from venue/promoter's website):
Vertiges is a charming and intriguing encounter between
two mature men: one a dancer; the other, a violinist.
In his signature fluid and pure style, Paul-André Fortier propels himself weightlessly across the stage, in dialogue with urprising live sounds performed by American Malcolm Goldstein.
With a vibrancy and tenderness between them, the pair skilfully lure the audience into the heart of their poetic world. Performer and choreographer, Fortier is internationally renowned for dance that is marked by innovation, renewal and a desire to defy convention.

European Premiere
"Vertiges reveals... a fine, touching lyricism...seeing older
dancers onstage is not a fortuitous anthropological
occurrence, but rather an artistic privilege. Bravo, Fortier." Le Devoir, Montreal
Meet the Artist:
Thu 3 Oct after the show
Free to same-day ticket holders
