Description

Theater Raymond Kabbaz (TRK), the innovative performance space at Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles, is pleased to present Quebec Dance Company Margie Gillis Legacy project “Evolutions” (premiere in Los Angeles), on Friday, October 25, 2019 at 7:30pm.

Evolutions offers a new tour concept: a transcendental and transformative adventure for audiences, with the fluidity and distinctiveness associated with Margie Gillis. In each show, Margie will be accompanied by eight Legacy Project dancers. Audiences will be offered an entirely singular experience, depending on the composition of the group performing. Spectators will be transported through a selection of works from Margie’s prolific repertoire, both in solos and group dances, interpreted acknowledging the individuality of each dancer’s experience. Every show will include new choreographies and a Margie Gillis solo performance.

Over fifty international participants are involved in the Legacy Project.
Margie has chosen to work with high-calibre professional dancers because of their understanding and commitment to her legacy. These participants include dancers from companies such as José Navas/ Compagnie Flak (Montreal), Marie Chouinard (Montreal), Anatomiae Occultii (New York), Ballet BC (Vancouver), Dancemakers Dance Company (Toronto) and KUNST-STOFF Productions (San Francisco/Europe).
