Two works that explore time, life and the cycle of things so as to reveal fundamental matter, the primary substance, and use it to create dance, an encounter between the body and nature.
Lina Cruz presents two works on time and the cycle of life. Created for the dancers of Throwdown Collective in Toronto, Ylem evokes the name given by Aristotle to the primary substance that is the fundamental matter of all things. What will this choreographic alchemy give birth to? A new dance of condensed matter arising from another life? Or on the contrary, a return to our origins?
