McPherson Playhouse (corner of Government St & Pandora Ave)

Performance Dates

Fri. Jan. 25 • 730pm

MAN — in the understanding as man and human being — is a project at the crossroads between two cultures. Through seriousness and humour, MAN portrays individual struggle for inner balance and unfolds as a dialogue between the Norwegian choreographer Sølvi Edvardsen and the remarkable dancer Sudesh Adhana. Presented in collaboration with the CODA Festival and The National Touring Company.

“Sudesh Adana, a trained Chhau and Kathakali dancer, is remarkable, portraying the softer qualities of man using only a small sitting stool as his partner.” STEPHEN WHITE
