Dawn or dusk? Tame or not? Dog or wolf? Entre chien et loup is a solo dance performance by Jame Gnam that covers the transformative space between two points. Drawing on his experience of uncertainty and safety, expansion and collapse, he toys with how imagination serves to free the self from imposed boundaries and limitations.
Best of all, we’ve got a pair of tickets to give away. To enter, just send an email to [email protected] before noon on March 28th saying if you are more wolf or more dog (or something else altogether). The pair of tickets are for the March 29th talkback performance.
Not only is Gnam excited to perform at the MAI, but the MAI is excited to host such a talented and dynamic performer. Gnam is a graduate of Canada’s National Ballet School and a former dancer of Les Grands Ballets Candiens and Ballet British Columbia where he was a principal dancer. He’s also performed with EDAM dance, Grand Poney, and MAYDAY.
After performing in some of Canada’s top venues, he left Ballet British Columbia to form his own dance company, plastic orchid factory. To date, he’s created over 25 shows and has collaborated and performed with Crystal Pit, Twyla Tharp, Mark Morris, Jiri Kylian, and many more.
Seeing such a highly trained performer in an intimate setting like the MAI is a special treat. Gnam himself thinks of the piece of more ritual than spectacle, so the audience is invited to be part of the experience.
Even better, if you catch entre chien et loup, you catch it ahead of its tour through Canada and the US. It’s off to Toronto, Edmonton, Nanaimo, Vancouver, and even Seattle.
Now’s your chance to see a new work FOR FREE. All you have to do is enter the contest.
