Jérôme Bel,

Performance: Cédric Andrieux

Friday, January 30 | 7PM

Internationally-renowned choreographer Jérôme Bel offers viewers an inside look into what it’s like to be a dancer in the revealing performance Cédric Andrieux. Professional dancer Andrieux translates his experience as a dancer, including his many years with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and the Lyon Opera Ballert, into a one-man show to give viewers an intimate look into a performer who has lived the history of contemporary dance. Moving beyond dance, the performance “works well as an illumination of the hard work, frustration, boredom, depression, physical pain and absurdity that are part of any life and career,” Michael Upchurch, Seattle Times.

Admission is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.
