Kaeja d’Dance presents
X-ODUS and Crave
as part of Harbourfront Centre’s NextSteps
Choreographed by Allen and Karen Kaeja

The award-winning Kaeja d’Dance, under the artistic direction of husband-and-wife team Allen and Karen Kaeja, proudly presents X-ODUS and Crave, an evening of two electrifying new dances – with Allen choreographing the former and Karen the latter – infused with the extreme and graceful kinetics audiences have come to associate with this acclaimed company. This cutting-edge double bill is rooted in each artist’s take on intimacy, solitude and the attempt to connect. Performed by an ensemble of five exquisite dancers, X-ODUS and Crave run Tuesday, May 7 to Saturday, May 11 at Enwave Theatre as part of Harbourfront Centre’s NextSteps.

In X-ODUS, Allen Kaeja utilizes his trademark “hyper physical, high impact choreography” (Toronto Star) to uncover pathways and connections between five individuals as they struggle to find intimacy, vulnerability and depth in their fragile and explosive journeys. Karen Kaeja’s Crave is a telling duet of the beauty and chaos of intimacy that explores how lack of intimacy makes us both seek and reject the other – and our contradictory desires in the triangle of coupledom: person, person, couple. Racing hearts navigate loneliness, unsettledness and the hope that keeps us hanging on.

Kaeja d’Dance’s Porch View Dances was the “Best Site-Specific Work” of 2012, “exploring the very essence of what makes us human…a poster child for site-specific dance done right.” Globe & Mail
