Indigo Rose

Ten Duets on a Theme of Rescue

STRØMGREN

Necessity, Again (music: Aznavour)



Since its founding 10 years ago, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet has become the go-to group for some of the world's most innovative and exciting work by up-and-coming choreographers. Led by Paris-born artistic director (and former Alvin Ailey dancer) Benoit-Swan Pouffer, the intensely physical company has built a reputation for its daring integration of ballet technique into contemporary forms, with dancers who are "exceptional, as skilled in detailed, classical articulation as in gutsy, full-bodied power" (The Guardian, London). Emotionally visceral works by international choreographers Crystal Pite, Jo Strømgren, and Jiří Kylián: showcase this distinctive company in all its dramatic power, with vivid stage lighting and driving musical scores.
