Celebrated “punk ballerina” and artistic director Karole Armitage is renowned for pushing boundaries. In Armitage’s hands, classical dance receives a needed shock to its system with speed and fractured lines, abstractions and symmetry countermanded by asymmetry. Three Theories is an evening-length work inspired by physicist Brian Greene’s best-selling book, The Elegant Universe, which Armitage uses as a means for exploring new possibilities in movement and patterning.
“She is always pushing the limits of possibility, spectacularly deconstructing the body with a diabolic flair. Dance that explodes in every sense, dazzles the eye and remains vividly imprinted in your memory.” - Nouvelle Observateur
