WELCOME TO TORQUE 2019–20
Director, Performing Arts
In this second year of our international contemporary dance series, Torque, we explore the broad scope of contemporary dance by some of the most exciting choreographers in the world today. Each of these striking pieces push the boundaries of movement, broadening our understanding of dance as a way to communicate ideas and emotion.
Some of these works are intimately personal narratives, at times quite theatrical, while others investigate emotion – loss, hope, alienation, the sense of belonging – through intense visceral experience. Presenting wide ranging perspectives from various cultures, each of these works explore humanity, the reality in which we live today and the ways in which we relate to each other.
We invite you to engage with these singular and deeply memorable performances, and we are thrilled to share them with you.
