Misfit Blues

MISFIT BLUES JANUARY 21-23, 8PM THE RACHEL BROWNE THEATRE BUY TICKETS WCD’s co-presentation with Fortier Danse-Création of Paul-André Fortier’s Manitoba Premiere of MISFIT BLUES and the remount of THIN ICE.Sublime misfits, Fortier and Regina’s incandescent Robin Poitras, get wild and silly in an ‘intoxicating ride through the incomprehensible abstractions and piercing truths of two people experiencing themselves as a unity.’ —BWW Review by Matt Hanson. Love, Clowning and other Silly Antics Although they’ve been around awhile, they view intimate relations as an equation with several unknowns, except that today there are no limitations to expressing their enthusiasms and their failings. They love each other, good or bad. They sound each other out, challenge each other, know how to manipulate one another. Thick as thieves, they also get bored, enjoy a good laugh, tread delicately between candour and cruelty. Under the ambiguous gaze of coyotes created by the Amerindian artist Edward Poitras, they present tender, perverse, hilarious characters – angelic tramps straight out of a Beckett play or burlesque cinema. Sublime misfits. After a successful and brilliant career over the past 40 years, the choreographer Paul-André Fortier pursues in Misfit Blues an adventure that began at the FTA in 2008 with Cabane. In this duo with the incandescent Robin Poitras (Bells, FTA 2013), he appears here in a new light in this bittersweet caricature of the grand human comedy. Text by Fabienne Cabado Special Note Paul-André Fortier wants to recognize the special contribution of Robin Poitras to the development of the choreography ofMisfit Blues. While she is not a co-author of the piece, Robin Poitras fed the creation process with her presence and with her exceptional improvisation skills.
