Chutzpah! Festival: Idan Cohen / Ne. Sans
Hourglass brings together contemporary dance and live music. This new work features a duet with former Ballet BC company dancer Racheal Prince & returning Ballet BC company dancer Brandon Lee Alley (Dance//Novella) joined on stage by pianist and celebrated conductor Leslie Dala. Hourglass is set to 4 Piano Études by acclaimed minimalist composer Philip Glass, one of the most important musical influences of the 20th/21st centuries. Glass’s work is celebrated for its ability to bend time, play with our perception of it, and break it apart. Drawing inspiration from this, Israeli choreographer and stage director Idan Cohen, Artistic Director of Ne. Sans opera and dance, fuses the past with the present to generate a movement that speaks of the most primal representation of time in our bodies: age and the process of aging.
Idan Cohen performed with Israel’s world-renowned Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company and has been creating and teaching as an award-winning choreographer since 2005.
