I have the pleasure to announce that I was re-invited to participate and create new work, duet called Encounter for the Festival Quartiers Danses in Montreal, Canada. 

3rd participation at FQD

Emerging choreographer Eva Kolarova has danced for the Ballet de l’opéra national du Rhin, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, and Ballets Jazz de Montréal. Her post-romantic universe mixing dream and reality gives rise to unique contemporary-ballet creations with great musicality. For her first duo, the FQD challenged her to make an intimate piece. Encounter is based on the experience of traveling to Seoul where Eva experienced culture shock. In this man/woman duo, two different and often opposite cultures give rise to a deep and inexplicable connection. The attraction expressed between the two performers is stronger than anything else, and their rising emotions submerge and overwhelm.
