TOUR: Crave presented by ODD in Ottawa, November 1-12, 2016
SÉRIE DANSE 10 / SERIES DANCE 10: Programme #25 for Ottawa Dance Directive (ODD) presents Karen Kaeja's simply breathtaking Crave, performed by Michael Caldwell and Stéphanie Tremblay Abubo.  
Crave is: poignant, romantic, whimsical and chaotic - a duet that mines intimacy while navigating loneliness, unsettledness and the hope that keeps us hanging on.

"Karen's duet Crave is a poignant exploration of a romantic relationship "in all its sweet and hideous colours." "Crave is absolutely haunting."  "Crave, le duo créé par Karen, est une exploration poignante des rapports romantiques dans toutes leurs couleurs douces et hideuses. Crave nous hante longtemps."
- PAULA CITRON, The Globe and Mail.


Choreography: Karen Kaeja
Created with performers: Michael Caldwell & Stéphanie Tremblay Abubo

Creative concepts are practitioner centric, emphasizing individual artistic processes and sharing collaborative and communal practices. Drawing on his performance platform Te Toki Haruru, Charles Koroneho (Aotearoa / New Zealand) will share his artistic methodologies in movement, creative and performance research.

" I loved worked with Charles during the Apocalypsis process last year where he assisted director Lemi Ponifasio (MAU) and led our trainings. I highly recommend this workshop for those keen to push their physical limits and dig into creation." - Claudia Moore
