Vertigo Dance Company “Pardes” at The Quick Center, Fairfield, CT, USA
Vertigo Dance Company - Pardes - Dan Ashuach
Dance has the power to transcend words in that it speaks its own language, the language of dance, the language of movement and expressionism, that requires no translation, no matter the country where it is performed. Contemporary Dance inspires the imagination, which is much more powerful than mere words. We saw the Vertigo Dance Company, an Israeli Contemporary Dance Company co-founded by Noa Wertheim and Adi Sha' al perform their dance composition of "Pardes" at The Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut, and it was an evening of dance excellence. If you have the opportunity to experience a performance by the Vertigo Dance Company, do so, as they are truly spectacular.
