Drawing from Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales as well as from the contentious strains of Bela Bartók’s Sonata for Piano, Sz. 80 (88), Pilgrimage offers a world of bizarre characterization and contentious relationships. CrossCurrents dance productions commissioned Melanie Kloetzel as a guest artist to create the group work for performances at the Pumphouse Theatres in Calgary. After the Pumphouse premiere, Pilgrimage was also presented by the Professional Series at the University of Calgary as part of Split Screen, an evening of works by kloetzel&co. and Michele Moss.
