Live Art is excited to bring Brazil’s Focus Cia de Dança with their mesmerizing piece Ímpar. This company has toured Brazil, Europe, and the US extensively, and now brings its magic to Halifax as a part of their first Canadian tour. Founded in 1997, this brilliant contemporary dance company embodies a movement that builds art and meaning around the daily lives of the people in its home city of Rio de Janeiro. Ímpar – which loosely translates as “odd” – uses seven bodies across a stage-turned-playground to tell a story both absurd and magical, ultimately revealing the genius of the choreographer and his company. This show is presented in conjunction with the Prismatic Festival.
