Libby Skala charmed Vancouver audiences two seasons ago with her heart-warming one-woman show, Lilia, for which she received international acclaim. Now she returns with A Time to Dance, a magical fusion of storytelling, improvised movement, and creative dance, to tell the life and soul of the spirited Austrian Elizabeth ‘Lisl’ Polk, who danced her way indomitably through poverty, artistic repression, and the rise of Hitler.
This one-woman show, called “fanciful and expressive” by The London Free Press, shares with its audience the voice of a cast of characters, enlivened through the profound talent of Lisl’s great-niece, Libby Skala. Skala recounts the tale of a woman who arrived in Vienna in 1902, survived two world wars, immigrated to New York, and danced the Macarena on her 100th birthday.
A pioneer of dance therapy and the wife of an unexpected suitor, Lisl tells the tale of harrowing adventure, wild creativity, and the discovery of a surprising and long-awaited for love.
A Time to Dance has toured Berlin, Dresden, Toronto, and New York, and arrives in Vancouver at Pacific Theatre March 19 (with a preview March 18), and running to April 4.
