Riverfront InterArts proudly presents the Canadian-US border premiere of Canadian dance luminary James Kudelka’s Four Old Legs, on stage Friday October 11, 2019 at 7pm at The Capitol Theatre Windsor. The evening includes an Artist Talk Back after the performance.
Legendary Canadian ballerina Evelyn Hart stars in a heartfelt journey of love, relationships, and the passage of time.
Citadel + Compagnie’s resident choreographer and Order of Canada appointee Kudelka has created this poignant performance piece celebrating time, memory, and experience. Ballet icon Evelyn Hart and acclaimed dance artist Zhenya Cerneacov eloquently explore the premise that growing older is something better practiced by young people.
Four Old Legs is a series of vignettes that explore long-term love, after the heady thrill of infatuation has faded. A series of solos and duets are danced in a sparsely furnished space, each one providing a glimpse into the shared life of a couple, weaving the emotional threads into the rich and varied tapestry of a longstanding relationship. Set to 16 songs by artists as varied as Chopin, the Talking Heads, Judy Garland, and Serge Gainsbourg, the music indicates the passage of time and helps to illuminate the gifts and challenges of the aging process. With lighting design by Simon Rossiter, projection design by Jeremy Mimnagh and costumes by Hoax Couture, Four Old Legs represents a collaboration of experienced artists at the top of their game.
