Pontus Lidberg Dance at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa

Sweden’s meteorically rising star Pontus Lidberg makes his NAC debut with a breathtakingly poetic new creation, Written on Water , as well as his 2013 masterwork, Snow . Celebrating the centenary of Igor Stravinsky’s turbulent, iconic The Rite of Spring , Snow is more intimate, yet equally powerful, performed to the original score. The propulsive choreography of Lidberg’s piece for four dancers – including himself, as well as a lifelike, highly expressive Japanese Bunraku puppet – is delicate, humorous, and introspective, exploring the fleeting and fragile human reality of existence in contrast to the relentless power of nature.
