Get ready for 2 brilliant men, both ingenious movement-based storytellers

Creating 2 different worlds on 1 inviting stage

Live Art Dance Productions boldly kicks off their 2014 - 2015 season with a pair of intimate male solo performances: Eesti: Myths and Machines by Montreal’s Peter Trosztmer, a riveting, multi-media work about an ancestor’s heroic wartime journey from Estonia to Canada, and Cible de Dieu (Target of God), a deeply personal performance by Montreal-based, Manitoba native, Jacques Poulin-Denis.

First up is Eesti: Myths and Machines by Trosztmer, who brings his stellar, mixed-media collaborative show to Halifax on September 25 through 27 at the Sir James Dunn Theatre. Inspired by the stories of his grandfather’s escape from Estonia in a small boat at the end of WWII, Eesti is a tour de force of movement, storytelling and kinetic sound sculpture that takes the viewer on an intimate journey of discovery and redemption.

Describing Eesti, Philip Szporer wrote in the Dance Current: “One of those rare performances that fill you up so that you’re brimming ... easily one of the best productions of the year.”

Where does reality end and fiction begin? Sifting through family history in the search for truth, Trosztmer brings a compelling, highly personal stage work that reveals both the resiliency of the human spirit and the ravages of time on collective memories. Sharing the atmospheric stage with Trosztmer’s limber athleticism and stark expressionism is the machine, an ominous sculpture wired for sound created by Jeremy Gordaneer with input from Eric Craven.

Says Trosztmer of this stage creation: This is the story of how my family came to Canada ... This is absolutely nothing like how my family came to Canada… Brought to life through letters and an oral history, we travel through time as I come to terms with how my grandfather’s heroism and courage resonate two generations later, and how they find a voice in the much less epic moments of ‘heroism’ that I encounter in my day to day neighbourhood life.

After receiving his B.A. in Classics, Peter Trosztmer studied at the Concordia University Department of Contemporary Dance before moving to Toronto to complete the School of the Toronto Dance Theatre training program. Since then, he has distinguished himself as in interpreter of the highest caliber and has worked and continues to collaborate with many national and international choreographers. Of special note is his performance bringing Norman McLaren? to life in 4dArt’s internationally acclaimed show, Norman. As a choreographer Peter has created four critically acclaimed solo works. Recently he was selected as one of three choreographers to participate in Triptych, a research event in partnership between Circuit-Est in Montreal, The Opera Estate in Bassano Italy, and The Dance Centre in Vancouver.

Next month, from October 9 through 11, Halifax audiences will have the opportunity to experience Jacques Poulin-Denis’ Cible de Dieu (Target of God), his first solo work that has toured internationally to great acclaim. A composer as well as performer, Poulin-Denis mines his seemingly endless interdisciplinary talents to reveal an overt and earnest story of chance and purpose, exposing the personal turmoil of an ill-fated anti-hero. Eschewing the spectacular in favour of raw sincerity, Poulin-Denis slowly unravels a series of personal events that transport the audience on the wings of human resiliency. Jaques Poulin-Denis is the Artistic Director of Grand Poney, an interdisciplinary company founded in Montreal that devises experiments in dance, theatre and music to bridge the obvious and the imaginary.
