Past Rooms

Skeels Danse

Irresistibly, Andrew Skeels emerges as a choreographer to watch. With Past Rooms, he delivers a sumptuous creation for seven performers, a poignant dreamlike reflection on absence.

A rising star on the dance scene, awarded the Grand Prix de la critique in Paris in 2018, Skeels created his first piece for Nederlands Dans Theater in 2022–23 and has worked with Les Grands Ballets and Cirque du Soleil. This dancer with an atypical background, a Montrealer by adoption, is now developing a subtle and sophisticated choreographic language, driven by his insatiable curiosity and his love of all things dance. With Past Rooms, set to a score by composer Julien Tarride, he ventures into dance-theatre. A woman suffering from insomnia is plagued by strange nocturnal visions… A tender and striking meditation on the burden of grief and sorrow.
