The Unknown
On from 01 Oct 2008 till 02 Oct 2008
Barbican
by Cecile Feza Bushidi


About: The Unknown

Powerful and lyrical, this dance piece is an evocation of intimacy and (mis)communication between an elderly man and a young woman who possess contrasting world views.

The Unknown is part of Dance Umbrella’s Brief Encounters series, showcasing short works by both talented new choreographers and established artists, which are performed prior to main stage shows.

Performance time: 18:45 (performed prior to Merce Cunningham Dance Company)
Running time: 25 mins/no interval

This performance is free when booked at the same time as Merce Cunningham performance on 1 or 2 Oct. Free trickets must be booked with box office or in person at the advanced box office. Subject to availability.

Part of Dance Umbrella 2008

Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cécile Feza Bushidi grew up in France and attended the Rick Odums Performing Arts School in Paris. She was awarded a scholarship to pursue her training at The Ailey School in New York and later joined Charleroi/Danses Plan K under the direction of Frédéric Flamand. She then came to the UK to work with Random Dance/Wayne McGregor. Her first choreographic work, X:Out of place, was presented in January 2007 at The Place.
