Stijn Celis's "Cinderella"

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has seen this version of Cinderella and what your opinions were? I'm itching for an excuse to go to Montreal for a weekend this fall...


Yes, I have. It is a thoroughly contemporary dance show. Only one character dances en pointe (the dead mother/fairy godmother). I happen to like Stijn as a choreographer, but if contemporary is not your taste, you may not like it. Also, the part of Cinderella really needs a dancer who has strong dramatic abilities for this version as was evident when the show premeired a few years ago. The first cast Cinderella (Gurard, now retired) really made the piece work much better than the younger 2nd cast cast one.

You can find in depth reviews at both The Dance Current and Maisonneuve magazine.
