Pontus Lidberg Dance
Presented by: Pittsburgh Dance Council
A rising international star, Swedish choreographer, dancer, and filmmaker Pontus Lidberg has created more than 35 works for major dance companies such as Ballet du Grand Theatre de Geneve, SemperOper Ballet Dresden, and Morphoses. "Snow" is a turbulent choreographic composition set in a ceaseless snowfall -- a poetic look at the fragile human reality of existence, in contrast to the relentless power of nature. Four dancers, with a lifelike, Japanese-style Bunraku puppet, tell a dynamic and poetic story of human experience.
