WORLD PREMIERE SHAPESHIFTER
CREATED and PERFORMED
by SOLO ARTIST LOUIS GERVAIS

Velocity Dance Center
April 10, 11, 12 at 8 p.m.

Performance artist Louis Gervais premieres his newest creation shapeshifter April 10 at Velocity Dance Center.

In shapeshifter, performance artist Louis Gervais pushes himself and his cast of characters to the limits of physical and emotional capacity. Outrageous understudies (carnival worker Randy McCrae and Iphelia, a hideously beautiful fairy godmother) take on Gervais' opening act and launch the evening into unpredictable directions. Each character shining and stumbling through an improvisational obstacle course.

Gervais' theatre works are consistently well-crafted, high-spirited affairs. In shapeshifter, Gervais unpacks a lifetime of skills as a dancer, choreographer and writer with the added ingredients of gender bending, commedia dell arte mask work and improvisation. The combined effect is likely to startle as well as amuse.

Louis Gervais says: 'I am equally thrilled and terrified to set this piece loose. It's very personal and in the same breath, it demands the audience to be engaged in a powerful way. If I can pull it off, it will be a life changing event for me as an artist.'

Gervais has appeared with more than 30 professional dance companies during his extensive career. His years pushing personal boundaries in the cathartic work of Compagnie Marie Chouinard of Montreal launched him into his solo career. His works are often playful metaphors of the human experience and social change that pack a quiet punch of spiritual exploration. Gervais completed his MFA in Dance at the UW in 2009.

shapeshifter is created by Louis Gervais. Original music by Mark Fauvre. Costumes by Terry Frank. Artwork by Bill Gaylord. Set by Scot Richins. Photo by Steve Korn.
