Sursaut At Nightfall
“I first saw Sursaut At Nightfall at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre as part of the Cultural Olympiads during the Vancouver Olympics,” said Claude Giroux, Artistic Director of Keyano Theatre & Arts Centre.
The story, wrapped in a magical set and a stunning lighting design and told through contemporary dance, follows a workaholic shoemaker, Auguste, who knows nothing of holidays and is only comfortable in the familiar confines of his workshop. When he enters a water forest populated by tiny creatures - crazy, tender, tipsy or delicate – the begins to go through a remarkable transformation. He becomes absolutely charmed, as will the audience.
