Under the direction of award-winning Ottawa choreographer and artistic director YVONNE COUTTS, COMPAGNIE ODD’s daring and compelling dance artists perform three works that will engage and heighten your curiosity with their tremendous physical intent. In The Eventual De-Expression of Rgs2, Coutts presents a world premiere solo work created in collaboration with award-winning Ottawa composer and musician JESSE STEWART playing live. The work takes its cue from American photographer Diane Arbus.

ODD’s mixed program also includes commissioned works by ANDREW TURNER and international touring artist MÉLANIE DEMERS. Demers, artistic director of Montreal’s MAYDAY, premieres a provocative quintet entitled Mere Human, while Turner presents the physically demanding quartet entitled Speeds and Slownesses 1a.

Mature themes.
