Le Petit Mort

There’s some good dance coming your way! Thursday night is the opening of Palissimo dance company’s Le Petit Mort.


Zustiak’s world is full of “striving, sweating bodies, but beyond what they actually do lies another, more enigmatic kind of “doing.””
-Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice

Choreographer Pavel Zustiak teams up with famed video artist Tal Yarden exposing postmortem ecstasy somewhere between a dream and a memory entitled Le Petit Mort. Raw, unsettling, emotionally charged images ask questions that are ultimately unanswerable – questions of the matters of the end. Scenes of disquieting stillness and agitation, haunting traces of life past living, will leave a residue that can’t be washed off.
