Kanopy is pleased to announce that Gecko, an international touring physical theater company based in the United Kingdom will premier a new tanztheatre work created by Artistic Director Amit Lahav for Kanopy Dance Company.

IKARUS a premier by KDC's Co-Artistic Director Robert E Cleary will explode onto the program as well. Based on the myth of Ikarus--- and the consequences of going beyond limitations—guest artist Vivan Tomlinson will portray Daedelus looking back on his life and mistakes. Kanopy’s Juan Carlos Diaz Velez will dance the role of young Daedelus. Isaac Robertson, (Kanopy Company Two) will dance the role of his son Ikarus, and Edgar Molino will dance the Minotaur. New music has been created for IKARUS by Greek composer Vicky Tzoumerka Knoedler. Costumes designer is Amy Panganiban. KDC’s Co-Artistic Director Lisa Thurrell will stage Black Angels and her acclaimed Maw weaving an older work with the newer— the theme: a stylized medieval morality play in dance form.
