Vertigo Dance Company "Pardes" at The Quick Center, Fairfield, CT, USA PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
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.

On Wednesday, January 18, 2022, we had the immense pleasure of experiencing a contemporary dance performance by the Vertigo Dance Company perform their composition, "Pardes," sponsored by The Consulate General of Israel to New England. What is especially notable about the company is that it was founded in 1992 by Noa Wertheim and Adi Sha'al and is one of the four leading dance companies in Israel.

For the Vertigo Dance Company performance of "Pardes" there was a minimalist set without scenery, to not detract from the dancers and their movements. With only monochromatic walls that acted as a background for the eight dancers, Choreographer Noa Wertheim creatively used a variety of shadow effects at different times during the engaging performance to maximize the impact with the shadows dramatizing and mimicking the dancers' fluid movements, with the result that the shadows became immense "dancers" themselves. As with most things in life, oftentimes less is more, and the bare stage enhanced the dramatic elements of the dance with elegance and style.

Contemporary Dance is about the fluidity of movement, the sensuousness of the physicality of the body, and to capture the imagination and engage the spirit. Hauntingly beautiful, the Vertigo Dance Company's performance of "Pardes" will resonant in patrons' minds long after the many standing ovations that the talented group received. Bravo!

Until next time, keep enjoying and supporting the arts!
