Yet another choreographer places his talents front and center to showcase the exceptionalism of the Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet. This time it’s Belgian award-winning Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
Orbo Novo (New World) is a quest for perfection, a perfection of balance between heaven and earth that allows us the freedom to experience the here and now without the entanglements of the past nor its effects on the expectations or the unknowns of the future.
But it starts with our choices, sometimes not only difficult but paralyzing when we don’t know which path to take. Yet at the same time our “now” depends on those choices. Ah, if only to always have the ability to make the right choices.. We can always hope.
Orbo Novo…and the incredible athleticism and daring of Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet.
Orbo Novo was inspired by My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylors in which she relates her experiences from a massive stroke. I hope you’ll like as well as share this talented choreographer with others.
