Jacques and James

December 4 - 7, 8pm
Artist Talkback Thurs Dec 5

Contemporary dance company plastic orchid factory & Montreal’s Grand Poney bring to the Firehall stage two enchanting companion solos. Co-created by James Gnam and  Lee Su-Feh, James traces one man’s journey from boyhood to manhood through his relationship with North American ballet classic, The Nutcracker. Cible de Dieu/Target of God exposes the personal turmoil of an ill-fated anti-hero. With a humorous twirl, the planets align and the stage is set for a catastrophic transition. Target of God has toured internationally to critical acclaim and is the brain child of Quebec interdisciplinary dance artist Jacques Poulin-Denis of Montreal’s Grand Poney.

“Gnam gives a totally riveting performance from beginning to end” – Kevin Griffin, Vancouver Sun
