Lux Aeterna Dance Company
October 5 at 7:30pm
Théâtre Raymond Kabbaz is proud to present a spectacular evening of interdisciplinary contemporary/acrobatic dance, Lux Aeterna Dance Company’s Punctum Saliens, premiering in the US on Wednesday, October 5, 2016. The critically acclaimed, Los Angeles-based Lux Aeterna, founded and directed by pioneering breakdance daredevil Jacob “Kujo” Lyons, will perform with dancers Lee “Mislee” Chesley, Lamonte “Tales” Goode, Rauf “Rubberlegz” Yasit and Jacob “Kujo” Lyons.
Creative dancer-choreographer Kujo is known for an eclectic and powerful movement vocabulary, which fuses various art forms such as breaking, contemporary dance, and circus arts. The award-winning company cultivates beauty from sources that might not otherwise be considered beautiful, in the traditional sense, transforming urban techniques into something transcendent, geometric and radiant. Of Kujo, former Los Angeles Times Dance Critic Lewis Segal says, “there is no more-brilliant choreographer in Los Angeles at the moment.”
A free cheese tasting , cookies tasting and a no host bar will be available before the show.
This show is part of the French-US dance exchange with Compagnie Par Terre.
