Win tickets to No Exit and Lost & Found at the Firehall Arts Centre
The Firehall Arts Centre is proud to present a double bill from Toronto’s Fujiwara dance inventions: the ensemble piece No Exit (based on the Jean-Paul Sartre play) and Lost and Found, a solo choreographed and performed by company artistic director Denise Fujiwara.
No Exit is a compelling dance-theatre work inspired by the philosopher Sartre's play of the same name. In it, three strangers arrive in an unlikely hell: a sitting room with a locked door. With exasperating provocations, humour and pathos, the characters exemplify the dilemma that Sartre has put forward through his proposition, “Hell is other people”.
In the second half of the evening, Denise Fujiwara choreographs and performs Lost and Found, a solo marrying the Japanese dance form of Butoh with improvisational dance. Exploring the duality of a divided soul, Fujiwara illustrates impermanence and attachment, loss and discovery with her trademark hyper-articulated and raw movement. Each moment in Lost and Found reveals us to be simultaneously lost and found.
