Red House and CORPUS introduce Nuit blanche to US

staff reports 11/14/09

Toronto based dance troupe CORPUS brings the acclaimed Nuit blanche to the Red House stage for an enchanting weekend of dance, theatre, comedy and clowning. CORPUS has toured throughout Canada and around the world and has chosen Syracuse and the Red House to make their United States premiere.

Nuit blanche follows six insomniacs into a night of broken sleep and waking dreams. Combining contemporary dance, physical theatre and comedy, Nuit blanche will take you on a fantastical journey through the bizarre and familiar territory of the sleeping subconscious. Nuit blanche was nominated for the 2002 Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding Choreography and was rated one of 2002's best dance shows by The Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star.

Co-founded by Sylvie Bouchard and artistic director David Danzon, CORPUS is known for its precise and surrealist humor that combines movement with theatrical imagery. CORPUS' unique and engaging performances have been presented in both traditional and unusual locations, for large and diverse audiences, since 1997.

"(Nuit blanche) shines in visual surprises. (Its) many delights are almost impossible to describe in words. They have to be seen to be really appreciated. (CORPUS) is a brilliant mix of dance, clown and storytelling..." -Paula Citron, The Globe and Mail

Nuit blanche by CORPUS can be seen at the Red House Arts Center December 10, 11 and 12 at 8PM and December 13 at 2PM. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for students and seniors and are available from More information and group discounts are available by calling Red House Marketing Manager Mike Intaglietta at 315-425-0405 or emailing
