Cloud 9, in partnership with the Young Centre for the Performing Arts, presents two world premieres by award-winning choreographers Susie Burpee and Tedd Robinson. These stunning works will be performed by Cloud 9 founders Sylvie Bouchard, Karen Kaeja and Claudia Moore with guest artists Michael Sean Marye and Ron Stewart. Susie Burpee has created a 20-minute trio for Sylvie, Karen and Claudia. Tedd Robinson's creation is a 30-minute ensemble work to the music of Chopin featuring all 5 performers. The evening has no intermission.
It is with great pleasure that we introduce to you Cloud 9. As the Founders and Co-Artistic Directors of this new collective, we invite you to be part of the inaugural phase of our initiative to feature seasoned dancers in great ensemble dance works on the stage!
Cloud 9 promotes accomplished Canadian dance artists who are passionate, award winning and highly driven. As a unique ensemble, Sylvie Bouchard, Karen Kaeja and Claudia Moore have joined forces to bridge a much needed void in the Canadian dance scene - the creation of a senior dance ensemble. Throughout their long and distinguished careers, they have founded MOonhORsE Dance Theatre, Older and Reckless, CORPUS, Dusk Dances, Kaeja d'Dance, and Festival of Interactive Physics. With Cloud 9, they commission brilliant choreographers for dancers over 45 years old, to perform masterful dance works on the world stage.
